  1. Will the Phenom II 920 work?
    No. The Phenom II 920 will not work because it is a 125 watt CPU your board will only support up to a 95 watt CPU. The good news is that the Phenom II x4 925 will work since it is a 95 watt CPU. You will however have to update your bios to 5002 Beta.

    Yes this will give a good boost in gaming especially the ones that can use all 4 cores.
