I dont think my Motherboard supports this CPU...?

Bought new CPU. It's a FX-6100, but when I installed it last night, my motherboard wouldn't start up. The power wouldn't turn on. As in, I'd push the power button, but it'd turn off about .5 seconds later. Spent about 30 minutes wondering what the problem was, until I put my old CPU back in.

Here's the CPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103962

My motherboard is: http://www.msi.com/product/mb/880GM-P51.html#/?div=CPUSupport

I just realized...that it's not supported :/ Usually I'm not this careless when buying upgrades...

Though I have been looking around the internet, is there any way I can get this working? Bios update or something?

  1. I don't think it will work because FX AMD work only on AM3+ socket.Send back the motherboard and change for an AM3+.
  2. i hate msi, because they do not provide much bios support
    it seems like they haven't provided any bios support for your board too, so looks like it won't work

    or use another cpu (that works with your board, of a friend) and upgrade your bios to the latest available and then try fx
