Will a AMD Phenom II X4 945 work in M2N68-LA (Narra6) motherboard

I was wondering whether AMD Phenom II X4 945 will work in M2N68-LA (Narra6) motherboard.

Link to motherboard - http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01925534&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=4328417

I was also wondering if this ram would work, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-CMX4GX3M2A1600C9-XMS3-SDRAM-Memory/dp/B002LE8D2A/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1353357368&sr=1-2


Thanks in advance :)

  1. The RAM would have to be downclocked, so something like:

    Would be better.

    That processor is weird. There are 2 versions, and only one will work.

    This WILL work. Your motherboard only supports up to 95w TDP, which that processor has. This, however, wouldn't work:

    It has a 125W TDP. You can get any Deneb processor as long as it has a 95w TDP.

    (Assuming your power supply can handle it)
  2. Funny, I never realized that there was a 95W and a 125W version of this processor. I guess 95W should be better (less heat, easier to overclock?)
