    Go to that link :

    Are those your specs?

    Need more details.
    In particular your CPU socket.
    Available RAM slots.
    AGP or PCI-e Graphics slot.

    If you open your chassis, google your motherboard number to get the specs.
  2. Tried a AMD Phenom x6 1100T on mine and unfortunately it didn't work. I was reluctant to replace motherboard too but I think it's the best option! :(
  3. It should work.
    Try updating your BIOS.
    Did you buy the chip?

    Buying a Thuban bases system is not worth it.
  4. Yeah I bought it.
    I updated my bios before I started to the latest one (2010) ;)
    The fans in the computer just rev up and down and keep doing that.
    Guess it's because the motherboard doesn't support 125W or would it be something else?
    Thanks :)
  5. Forgot to say aswell its Am2 socket, pcie slot with Sapphire 6950.
    First run as well...
    To scared to start it again in case it does damage! :(
  6. You sure its not an AM2+ board?
    That what Im getting in searches.

    It sounds like you have a lack in power. What is the Wattage on your PSU?
  7. 880Watt PSU
    On the white surrounding for the core it says Am2 - its a Acer Aspire M3201 Board which is the Acer RS780HVF board.
    On my power supply I have two 4 pin plugs that go into the motherboard...
    I'm only able to plug one in because theirs only one slot :??:
    Maybe its because I'm not able to put enough power into the board with only one plug or should this not matter?
    Would it damage it trying it out again.
    I've only just put it back together after changing cases?
    Maybe somethings plugged in wrong? :p

    Thanks
  8. LGA1155 SB uses a new socket (LGA 1155) and chipsets (H67 and P67) and thus is incompatible with older motherboards/chipsets. http://www.tiendabateria.es

    The 4-pin connector is CPU power and on larger CPU and board two are there, most of the time only plugging in one should not matter, but I have seen it happen that it is not enough to supply the needed power.

    No, it should not damage anything if you try again. Go for it. Just be sure that all the 24-pin of motherboard power connector is plugged in properly.
  11. Cool , thanks for that.
    Do you think that if it does come to replacing motherboard will I need more heat sink paste. Only used it once for about a minute (from out of the box-new) and been in the PC for a day or 2 (unused). Just not really sure. :)
    Thanks
  12. Only one 4pin socket on the motherboard and 2 plugs on PSU ( 8 PINS).
    :)
  13. If you still have enough left in an old tube its fine, you can finish that. Just don't re-use whats on the processor and cooler.
  14. O.k.
    Thanks for all your help!
    I think I've sorted everything out now! :D
    Thanks
  15. Pleasure! Enjoy!
