So I just got some recommendation from members from this board and just order these new motherboard and cpu, but i just notice that the cpu watt usage is 125 watt while the supported watt for the motherboard says 95. Is it compatible still? if not what should i do :S

Heres my desktop specs:

http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=FQ424AA-PB-R

Everything is the same except for the grapic card, which I current have an ATI Radeon HD 4300/4500 series.

To upgrade my desktop a expert here recommended me to get these items and said they were compatible:

ASRock N68C-GS FX AM3+ NVIDIA GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

CORSAIR Builder Series CX500 V2 500W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-10600CL9D-4GBNT

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

ASUSTeK COMPUTER NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 ENGTX260/HTDI/896MD3/A

Since the motherboard and cpu is compatible and the cpu cant be return is there any other motherboard that will be compatible with my computer spec and the new cpu and psu and what not?


Thanks for the help

Try updating to the latest BIOS, if it doesn't work try to return the CPU to newegg and get this one
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But I'm not sure about the RMA with newegg. I don't live in the US or Canada I don't know the policies.

the cpu is not returnable it can only be replace. newegg however allow a standard return policy for the motherboard. So any suggestion for another motherboard?

I don't get it. Do you have a prebuilt HP machine? If so how is the motherboard gonna be compatible? HP uses BTX boards and has special designs.

Well, he was right in one respect that the socket was compatible, but I'm guessing he didn't check TDP compatibility. Anyway, just look at what I said in my last post above. Something to try and 2 mobo's that I KNOW will work.

Yes, HP and Dell use BTX motherboards, yours is an ATX,
Make sure that it will fit in your HP machine before you make any purchase.

Also, if you don't wanna change the motherboard you can replace the CPU with the 955 BE 95W I linked above.

Well, they're compatible with the 965 at least. I can't speak as to whether or not they're compatible with the case (although looking at the case dimensions, they should fit, but I'm not sure about the screw holes lining up).

Also check the I/O shield outputs are the same or not, or you can simply remove the I/O shield.

I would imagine the new mobo should come with an I/O shield, so as long as the one in the HP is removable, you should be good.

The 965 is on the support list, so it should be fine. I just don't like the chipset.

It'll be fine for the 965, it's just older an not as good for Bulldozer CPU's if you ever want to upgrade (although they're supported).

For somehow the size was a little bit different than the regular ATX boards, that's what I have experienced with my Dell XPS.

Not for the 965 it doesn't. It just may not be as good for BD CPU's.
