Hi there all. Im new to this forum and i want to ask. I've got 3-4 years old MoBo Asus M2A-VM and recently bought AMD radeon 6850 factory overclocked. Can i put CORSAIR CX600 V2 in there? And if not please recommend some alternative choice of psu. Thnx

Corsair CX 600 V2 enough for HD6850 + system and support, you will get bottleneck with HD 6850, upgrade PC totally

The thing is i got amd athlon II x4 640. Although it doesn't recognize the type it does all four cores and i noticed a huge perf. boost even that the CPU isnn't officialy supported by that MoBo. i know I would get a little bottleneck because of mobo. But i think i do notice the upgrade from my old 8800 GT to HD6850.

HD6850 more and more better than Old 8800, and worth for for future and still can handle strong game. for balance may you need try OC CPU / at default GPU

The PSU is fine for that GPU and CPU. If you're going to upgrade in the future, you could get a 700 / 750 PSU to be on the safe side, but a 600W PSU is OK for what you're proposing.

Interesting that the mobo doesn't recognise the CPU but still works with it. For safety, check the voltage and temperature it's running at to make sure the chip isn't going to end up damaged.

I used a an amd phenom 9850 on an old asus board, think it was a m2n-sli deluxe. it was an am2 board, not an am2+ board so the cpu worked on it but only at around half to 75% speed. i updated to the latest bios where asus had added am2+ cpu support, end even though it didn't support hyper transport 3, i still got a huge boost! a little bit of instability on ocassions though. I would seriously recommend updating your motherboard with the latest bios!!

i checked it and the temperature reads Tj Max 70 C, Cpu#0 34 C and core voltage 1,424. Is it alright ?
