I'm looking into buying a Phenom II x4 965 BE
(Such good value for performance!!)
Anyway, on the motherboards I'm looking at, it says AMD 970 Chipset, so will the 965 not work? Also below that it says that the motherboard is compatible with FX / Phenom II / Athlon II / Sempron 100, so I'm presuming that just means its compatible with the processor
I also heard that the processor can't use 1600mhz RAM, but then I also heard that if you get a certain type of motherboard it will be compatible?
Anyway, this is the motherboard I'm looking at, and also a link to the processor for whatever reason you may need it
I bought the 965 shortly after it came out ad paired it up with a 770 chipset board. It's being working without a problem ever since and I can play just about anything without needing to overclocking it.
