i know i know i was sjust saying if you ever wanted to, its a good option.
Oh I understand, and I'm well aware of my options.
The problem with that particular motherboard (MSI K9A2-CF) is it's hard-limited to 95W CPUs. (MSI chose shitty MOSFETS, which were upgraded in the "V2" model of the same board to support 125/140W Phenom CPUs.) Any AM3 CPU I dropped into it couldn't be unlocked (SB650 doesn't have ACC) or overclocked (much, if at all) without risking the entire board due to power limitations.
