Does the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition go with this motherboard?

I have bought the

AMD HDZ965FBGMBOX Phenom II X4 965 - 3.4 Ghz AM3 Black Edition CPU, Retail Packaged processor

with the

Asus M5A78L-M LX Motherboard (Micro ATX, Socket AM3+, 5200MT/S, DDR3, Core Unlocker) motherboard

from Amazon

and I need to be sure they go together. Do you know if they do?

heres the links...

More about does phenom black edition motherboard
  1. this is VERY URGENT cause i might need to cancel the order
  2. http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM3Plus/M5A78LM_LX/#CPUS
    That board does not officially support CPUs with TDPs greater than 95 W, it might work, it might not, but i wouldn't bet on it.
  3. according to the maker of the board no it doesnt only takes 95W parts you would want this one

  4. thanks people.

    right so i will cancel the mobo i've ordered and get this one... Asus M5A78L-M LX V2 Motherboard and that will work with the AMD HDZ965FBGMBOX Phenom II X4 965 - 3.4 Ghz AM3 Black Edition?

    i also ordered the

    Corsair CMPSU-500CXV2UK Builder Series CX500V2 - 80 Plus Certified Power Supply

    and the

    Asus nVIDIA 3D GeForce GT 440 Graphics Card (1GB, GDDR5)

    if that changes anything?

    The CPU fitted in fine but the stock cooler that came with it doesn't appear to fit the module ID's aren't in the Support list but I just think because you need an aftermarket Cooler?
