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

  1. They should work just fine.
  2. Yes the CPU will fit into the Motherboard and will work, though you wont be using the mobos full potential as its AM3+ while the CPU is AM3. But this wont degrade performance or anything, so its all good.
  3. I had another thread and the guys said that the mobo wouldn't support 125w ...?
  4. According to the ASUS website:


    The PII 965 is NOT listed.
  5. You should ALWAYS check the motherboard manufacturer's CPU Support List. JFReggie is correct in that it is not listed.
