The details on my mobo say it should be able to, its 95w and a phenom 2 am3. I remember when I bought this mobo though, the guy said something about am3, and I forget. So I was just double checking if it would work. Thanks.
If you install a CPU that is not supported by your current BIOS, chances are that the system will not pass POST. Update the BIOS then install the new CPU. I try to keep an older CPU for each socket type in my bin in case I get a motherboard with an old BIOS and need to install a new CPU on it. Having an old spare makes it easier to get the BIOS update done.
