Ya I would like to buy a Phenom II X4 940, but I'm not sure that it will work. Asus lists the 945 as a compatible processor, but not the 940. I find that strange since the 940 is am2+ and the 945 is AM3... I have an AM2+ board. Can anyone help me understand this compatibility issue?
Some manufactures are slow in updating their compatibilitiy lists. You will have to verify that they Bios has been updated to support a 940. The physical compatibility of the board isn't an issue, just the bios.
