I ordered an Athlon II X4 640 to slot into my Asus M2NPV-VM. Recent BIOS updates expanded the CPU support list to include the 640 (but nothing beyond that). My CPU arrived today, and to my shock and horror they sent me the 645!
It'll be great if it works since I get 100MHz for free, but I'm a bit nervous that the board won't support the 645. It's essentially the same CPU, just with a higher multiplier... What are the risks here?
Urgent response would be appreciated: I'm dying to install that chip! Will also post on the Asus forums just to be certain.

I think you might not be able to get the cpu supported. Could you return it?

Guess, or based on solid evidence? I need to be sure.
