So the 8core will just run fine with that motherboard?? is the 8120 95w? or 125w? >.< gee im going crazy secret1337 April 21, 2012 3:26:39 PM I do not need 2500k, because at windows 8, the 8 core surely beats 2500k, plus 8 core is useful for freak people like me that runs alot of virtual machines. but all I want to know if it will boot up on that 760g motherboard or not >.< Related resources DDR3 1600 RAM / Mobo Compatibility (and Overclocking) Question: - Forum Mobo RAM compatibility ? - Forum CPU and RAM Compatibility - Forum Asrock mobo/ram compatibility question... - Forum Question about mobo ram compatibility .... - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Get the answer secret1337 April 21, 2012 3:29:25 PM anyways thanks, i guess you just dont like people who buy bulldozer cuz clearly you shows that you are an intel fanboy. i really dont care with amd or intel, what I want is that goes to my budget. but thanks anyways. secret1337 April 21, 2012 3:33:03 PM this is the real me lol, but with what you said " If that motherboard does not work.... find one that does " that clearly shows that you are just not into AMD fan boys, well im not fanboy, but doesnt matter anymore, i got my answer from other guy who is actually nice, rather than a sarcastic fanboy. *request topic to be deleted as I got my answer already wr6133 a b à CPUs a b V Motherboard April 21, 2012 3:42:28 PM http://www.msi.com/product/mb/760GM-P23--FX-.html#/?div... Why buy an over priced, under performing FX CPU to sit on a modded antique chipset though? Phenom II and a 970 or 990 chipset board would have cost less and performed as well/better. Or Z68 and Intel would have cost more but performed better. FX are cr@p the cheap ones perform terribly worse than the older phenom II and the expensive ones cost i5 2500k money and dont come near it in gaming performance. edit* oh by the way it doesnt have 8 actual cores jsc a c 172 à CPUs a c 156 V Motherboard April 21, 2012 3:52:37 PM Well, it sort of does - as long as all eight cores are doing integer stuff.
