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. jaguarskx a c 471 à CPUs a c 118 À AMD May 18, 2013 3:09:57 PM Yeah, your motherboard only supports 95w TDP Phenom II CPUs. http://www.asrock.com/mb/NVIDIA/N68C-S%20UCC/?cat=CPU You either need to return that CPU or buy a motherboard that will support it. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer rvieaujr May 18, 2013 4:32:13 PM 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.
