Hello all,

Current system specs:

Phenom II x4 925 AM3 (With an Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro heatsink)
Foxconn A7GM-S (not a 2.0, but I have updated the bios to support the AM3 CPU)
OCZ 4gb ram
EVGA 9800gt SC edition
Antec 900
1080p Monitor

I have two questions:

First, does anyone know if the 955 BE will work for my MB? I think some people have but I'm still not sure. (heres a list, but I can't seem to expand to all the supported processors. http://www.foxconnsupport.com/cpusupportlist.aspx?type=... )

Second, if it does work, would my cpu cooler keep it cool enough?

Makes since, I bought the 925 two years ago when they didn't have any other cpus but 95w ones on there. So I was afraid of getting the 125w cpu for it. But I guess it could've gotten a 955 :??:

Thanks, I thought so. I wonder if the bulldozer 4 core chips are going to push the phenom II 955 to under a hundred in the coming holiday season.
