  1. Hello lonewolf1911;

    Explain 'doesn't fit' for us.
  2. From www.cpu-world.com:
    910e / HD910EOCK4DGM 938-pin

    9100e / HD9100OBJ4BGD 940-pin

    Does the CPU socket not allow the extra 2 pins on the 9100e to seat?
  3. hi, just will not fit into socket, should it be compatible with that motherboard??

    think i've looked at the support page wrong, and got wrong CPU damn it lol

    any ideas on a compatible MB for the 9100e / HD9100OBJ4BGD 940-pin

    thanks for the quick response
  4. looking at the links you just put,

    both chips say AM2+ and think the MB is AM3 only GRRRRRRRR
  5. Socket AM2 and AM2+ boards both have 940 pin sockets.

    N68S3 Ver. 6.x is Socket AM3 accepts 938 pins.
  6. You can put a 938pin CPU (AM3) into an AM2/AM2+ board.
    But you can't put a 940pin CPU (AM2/AMD2+) into a 938pin MB (AM3)
  7. You think you could sell that 9100e on eBay and pick up an AM3 CPU?
  8. lol i picked the 9100e up off flea bay....

    was just hoping to boost this rig up from a Sempron 140......
    should have checked the part numbers better damn

    are there any good AMD2+ MB that support ddr3 1333 sdram you know of?
  9. is this board any good?? cheap but looks like it will do the job

    http://www.ebuyer.com/221178-asrock-n68c-s-ucc-geforce-7025-socket-am2-vga-out-6-channel-audio-n68c-s-ucc

    thinking of getting it and selling the Biostar and Sempron as bundle deal
  10. forget that,
    DDR3 memory is only supported by installing AM3 cpu.

    damn it grrrrrrrrrr

    only got ddr3 sticks, cant be bothered changing the whole lot, think i will be selling it
  11. Yeah, that AM2/DDR2 ... AM3/DDR3 issue complicates things.

    Sell the 9100e. I'd do the same in your position.
  12. thinking of getting
    HDZ955FBGMBOX Phenom II X4 955 - 3.2 GHz, 6 MB L3 Cache, AM3 socket - 125W - Black Edition

    is this the same as AMD Phenom™ II X4 x955 HDX955WFK4DGM but retail boxed version???
  13. oh damn its a 125w version board only goes up to 95W found that out on the 965BE i got ages ago,

    why are any of the 95w cpu's for this board so hard to find???
  14. Are you sure you want to jump up to the 125W TPD CPUs?

    HDX955WFK4DGM is a 95watt TDP version of 955. (from CPU support list)


    125W TDP version: HDZ955FBK4DGM is an OEM/tray microprocessor & HDZ955FBGMBOX is a boxed microprocessor

    http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Phenom%20II%20X4%20955%20Black%20Edition%20-%20HDZ955FBK4DGM%20%28HDZ955FBGMBOX%29.html
  15. i have another rig

    Coolermaster Sniper scout case.
    Corsair HX850W PSU.
    Corsair Hydro H60 (with extra 120mm fan for push-pull),
    2 x ASUS HD6950 in CrossfireX
    AMD phenom ii x4 965 BE.
    ASUS M4A77TD_PRO MB.
    16gb 1333mhz DDR3, with Arctic Cooling.
    Corsair Force 3 120gb sata III SSD
    Western Digital 500gb back up.

    win 7 ultimate 64bit.

    windows index..... 7.6

    the one i'm trying to upgrade lol, is for my partner, she's starting uni in march, studying nursing, doesnt need mega power but thought i'd upgrade from the Sempron 140, not wanting to hit the 125w on this rig tho,

    i cant seem to find ANY of the decent supported cpu's as there all mostly 125w not 95w like i need.... grrrr

    looked on ebuyer, flea-bay, few others need a uk stockest if possible, or can you recommend what other cpu to go for from the supported list
  16. hmmmm ok HDX955WFK4DGM from cpu-world so this should be ok??????????

    HDX955WFK4DGM chip identification - 1 match

  17. actually looking at this might be able to get cheap would this be ok, its am3, 95w, 938pin

    HDZ955FBK4DGI (HDZ955FBGIBOX)

  18. all are 125w......... gezzz why are the 95w so hard to find???
  19. I was thinking AMD Phenom II X4 840 3.2GHz 95w would get the job done.
  20. not on CPU support page only upto a 955 @95w that is the problem :lol:
