MSI 970A-G46 compatibility question
Feb 10, 2013, 11:55 AM
I think a made a mistake... no big deal because I can just return the item.
I ordered the MSI 970A-G46, not realizing I had removed my purchase of a Phenom II X4 which was compatible with the motherboard...
The CPU I own is a Phenom II X3 720 2.8ghz Black edition Deneb. It doesn't look like the Deneb version of this CPU is on the compatibility list and I honestly didn't think this would be the case....
Will it not work with this motherboard? Should I try to cancel my order as soon as I can Monday morning? Ugh....

Becasue the CPU is not on the CPU support list then it is not compatible with the MB. You need to cancel the order ASSP.

It says I can't make changes to the order....
OK well, it looks like I'm just going to convince the rents to get get the Phenom II X4 965 which looks to be compatible with the motherboard I already purchased. Thanks for the quick answer.
