I am currently running a 64x2 5000 cpu on this mobo (n68-s) and thinking of upgrading. I looked at asrock's cpu list and did not see the 840 listed. The 840 is a 95 watt chip and I remember talk about it being an overclocked Athlon II X4 650. The 650 is listed. So with all this research I think it will work. But I must be certain, has anyone done it that will tell me it works.

Also if you think I'm on the wrong track with the 840 what would you opine

it is pretty much the same than the Phenom II X4 840 but without the L3 cache.

it should work

if you didn't already buy it, get a Phenom II X4 945 Deneb

I haven't bought it yet, thank you, the 945 is better.
