AMD socket compatability Tags: CPUs Cache AMD Socket Last response: June 8, 2011 4:11 AM in CPUs Share bionicrdnck November 23, 2010 5:50:27 AM I am looking at an AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3. Would this CPU be compatable with an Asrock K1078M motherboard?

In that case, it must support the X4 965 as the chipset is AM3 compatible..

Post Edited, I made a mistake. I cannot find this motherboard model on AsRock's site, are you sure that is the correct model number bionicrdnck? Otherwise if it is the K10n78: http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=K10N78, then it can support the AMD 955BE with BIOS version P1.50 for the C2 and P1.60 for the C3 chip. candreae June 8, 2011 4:11:06 AM http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=K10N78M From the cpu compatability chart it would seem the 955 would work just fine...heck the board will support the 6-core models.
