Although it does support a 955 ,I wouldn't be surprised is it did, but you might get into serious trouble.
If this is something you already have then you can try it out and see if it works, the socket and the cpu are compatible. But if this is some deal you are getting or planning to get, give us the details and we'll guide you through it.
It's deactivated on Newegg, doesn't mean he doesn't already have it or it's not available elsewhere. That's just a link to tell us what Mobo he's trying to ask help about.
Deactivated but details about it are still there.....
CPU AMD AM3/AM2+/AM2 ;Phenom™II /Athlon™II /Phenom™ / Athlon™ /Sempron™ Processors
AMD Cool 'n' Quiet™ Technology
AMD 64 architecture enables simultaneous 32-bit and 64-bit computing
Support CPU up to 95W
*Due to the chipset limitation, the AM3/AM2+ CPU runs at HT1 (1000MHz).
*Refer to www.asus.com for the AMD CPU support list
Yup. The HT1 is very true since I tried running my 965BE in my M2N-SLI32 and it did have a limit.
Also only 2 Cores used to be functional and the other 2 didn't even show up in the BIOS.
SO basically if you end up putting a 125W processor into a Board that has a Max support for 95W you'll end up either not booting the rig altogeher or just end up frying the power circuitry on the Mobo, either way, it's not advisable.
But Note: The Asus compatibility list shows that this board supports the 125W Phenom II X4 955
"Phenom IIX4 955 (HDX955WFK4DGM),3.2GHz,125W,rev.C3,SocketAM3,Quad-Core "
That's the main reason I said that it's surprising that the list does not mention the 125W 965BE that you have.
The only setback is the HT 1GHZ speeds...... but till you upgrade to a much better board .....
That HT (Hyper Transport) speed is pretty much the basic speed at which data is sent up and down a Mobo. Too much of a difference between the CPU and the Mobo causes Bottle necks, and that used to happen to me during my testing up the 965BE, a program would like break start, the system would stall.... so it get's pretty irritating.
