Hello TH,

I have been out of the game for a while, and I'm rebuilding my PC. I have but one question :

Will any AM3 MoBo, support any AM3 CPU?

Prime example;

CPU
MoBo

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply.

I guess I am still a little skeptical, as per the compatibility chart it honestly doesn't list the specific CPU I am looking at. Item code for which is;

HDZ965FBGMBOX

But there are Phenom II x4 965s in there, but not my particular one. Will it still work?

Some may only support up to a certain no of W ie some support up to 125W some only 95W but most support 140W which is all of them. Some may also need a bios update. the board in your link supports them all.

That board supports all AM3 processors including hexacore. However, you can find a AMD chipset motherboard for less money with the same features.

Not to mention that motherboard only has a 1 yr warranty. I wouldn't buy it.
