My Biostar motherboard is an AM2+ socket, and my current AMD Tri-Core CPU popped, so I did some research and found the best compatible CPU would be the Phenom II x4 965. So I bought it and put it in last night. And got a BBN
!!(big-black-nothing)So needless to say Im pissed. What can I do??
Yeh I eventually tracked it down to CPU thermal power. My board supports UP to 95W and the new CPU is 125W...so I had to buy a Mb that can support the 125W CPU...got a MSI 970A-G46 with some new DDR3 1333 RAM. *sigh* Now I'm so broke I cant even pay attention....but its working at least
