Possibly. One of the things AMD approves and that you could visibly check is whether your power supply (bottom side facing the motherboard) has a fan or ventilation slots/holes directly above the cpu/hsf combination. This is desirable by AMD to remove heat away from the processor.

When I went out to buy a power supply(for AMD processor), I check 2 things:
1)The power supply must have at least 150w combined maximum output for 3.3v and +5v, higher is better.
2)It must be a heavy one. To know how heavy, go to a shop with many different brands of powersupply, including generic brand, take one branded powersupply and feel the weight, and compare it with a generic brand.
1) I agree. Depends on your system. 150w for some and more for others.
2) Ever wonder how the light weight ones get "ul" and other approvals?
Asked a sales person at "Best Buy" once about that. He says "With modern technology you don't need a lot under the hood." I looked at him and thought how he and the lightweight power supply were similar.
