  1. Well something is definitely wrong since CPU-Z is only reporting it has having 2 Cores and 2 Threads; it should be twice that.

    Does your motherboard actually support a Phenom II X4 965? The PII X4 965 is a 125w TDP CPU. Perhaps your motherboard only supports 95w TDP CPUs from AMD.
  2. Yeah, your motherboard only supports 95w TDP Phenom II CPUs.

    You either need to return that CPU or buy a motherboard that will support it.
  3. sell that cpu and go with a 95w cpu like the fx4170 or something or u could upgrade ur motherboard, most newer mobo's support up to 140w cpu which will handle any cpu oc'd.
