hello , does Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P Motherboard and Biostar A880GZ readily support amd fx4100 without updating the bios of the board by using a sempron or phenom 2 ,cause i had this problem with asus m5a78l-m le motherboard, the processor needed an updated bios which could only be done with the processors which i mentioned. I am going to replace the asus board with either of two boards.PLEASE DO SURF THE WEB...

The problem is your looking at old boards designed for old cpu's, and trying to use them with new cpu's.

Why?

Since your stuck on using old motherboards for your new processor, this one I know works with FX4100. (note this mobo only supports 95w cpu's)

The GX78LMT-S2P I hear works with FX (95w limited), but there are so many revisions of that board (5 I think), no telling which one your going to get and some DONT support FX.

I think you would be much better off picking up a i3-2100/2120 and a H61 mobo. Compatibility is guaranteed and you have a decent upgrade path, it's also faster an more efficient.

This doesn't give you an answer in particular, but in regards to 125W cpu's I mistakenly bought an FX-8150 w/c is a 125W cpu and plugged it into my rev 5.0 Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P mobo w/c is strictly limited to 95W cpu's according to AMD's website. My setup runs fine as long as I uninstall Vision Engine Control because my system became unstable (BSOD, lock-ups, and the cpu fan speed was over-reving). So with just the Catalyst drivers only Windows 7 down-clock's the FX-8150 to 2.8 GHz instead of the native 3.6 GHz. As it stands now, my GV-R7750C-1GI video card driving a 55" HDTV simultaneously playing three recorded 720p videos, a couple of hi-def programs being recorded with HDHomeRun Prime, "flying" through terrain in Google Earth, playing a 720p Youtube video all at the same time never pushes the cpu core above 39C ( stock cpu cooler) despite Windows Task Manager performance tab reporting CPU Usage that hovering around 70 to 92%. Still, not bad for an HTPC only system. Will be installing a low profile Noctua NH-L12 cpu cooler and see if that quiets things down a bit. But, when a suitable 8-core 95W (or less) cpu become's available to the consumer I think I'll be getting that so I can fully use AMD's Vision.
