Solved Need help with AMD CPU code #'s Tags: CPUs Compatibility AMD Last response: November 1, 2012 10:12 PM in CPUs Share stranger46 November 1, 2012 9:12:49 PM Long story short, my MB lists this CPU as compatible, http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Phenom%20II%20X4%... Exact match down to the letter. Is this the same thing? just different code # due to being a boxed retail version? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... My MB documentation lists it as 95w, the CPUWorld site lists it as 95w, but newegg lists it as 125w? I am confused...

If it only handles up to 95w, you could have a problem. There are indeed different versions of the "same" chips. There were 95w 1055's and 125w 1055's. I think the difference was the amount of voltage each version required to operate at the 2.8Ghz clock speed. | Report abuse Best solution DJDeCiBeL CPUs Master November 1, 2012 10:05:40 PM Quote:I think the difference was the amount of voltage each version required to operate at the 2.8Ghz clock speed. In this case (955), it's because the 125W version is a Black Edition chip and the 95W version isn't. | Report abuse stranger46 November 1, 2012 10:12:36 PM Best answer selected by stranger46. | Report abuse stranger46 November 1, 2012 10:12:44 PM Thanks for the heads up guys, you saved me from a costly mistake, I have setteled on this one, as 4 core 95 w am3's are getting hard to find http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Need help with AMD CPU code #'s> Related ressources: ForumCPU change from Intel to AMD produces stop code 7B on bootup ForumHelp choosing a new amd cpu ForumCrash/Resets Error Code .
