"This Cpu is not supported by this model" Tags: CPUs Windows 7 Last response: January 26, 2013 4:58 PM in CPUs Share Pawchii January 25, 2013 3:18:25 PM Hello, I recently put together my very first PC Gaming Build & got this message when I booted it up. "This Cpu is not supported by this model" 550w Power Supply ASUS MICRO ATX Mobo & AMD Phenom II x4 CPU Windows 7 Home Premium I have run Windows 7 anyways and it is installing as I type. Just wondering does it really even matter? with all the other posts saying it works fine anyways I don't really care unless the computer just completely dies on me which i don't think will happen. But anyways, Is it really much of a deal?

The fact that you can boot means you have a good chance to flash it. The bios will be found on the Asus site and if you can flash with ez flash from within the bios it is the safest way to do it. m 0 l Related resources "This CPU is not supported by the model. - Forum This CPU is not supported by this model! - Forum Shader model 3 not supported? - Forum Shader model 2.0 supported games - Forum GTX 780 Trying to install games does not support shader model 3 - Forum Can't find your answer ?
