Here is a URL at Asus.com for the CPUs that the M2N68-AM will support:

http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M2N68AM/#C...

In the X6 line, why would only the 1035T, 1055T, and 1090T be supported? Why not the entire line of X6 processors, or at least all those below the 1090T?

thanks,

I believe that is just a matter of them not updating their list after the release of 1075 and 1100 that came to the table later.

Thanks! I had assumed the various models would have been released sequentially if not simultaneously. But, prompted by your reply I did a little research and found that the 1035, 1055, & 1090 came out months before the others. So, I suppose it's safe to assume whichever of them I can find a good deal on would work.

Since it supports the 1090T which is 125W TDP, you should be able to support them all. Thats the biggest hinderance to any AMD mobo, is the max TDP of a CPU. We have some at work that only support up to 95w TDP Phenom IIs.

It is still strange that Asus didn't update the list as they are very good about that. Hell they already added support for Intel Ivy Bridge to their Z68 and P67 mobos.
