My motherboard is a MSI 880GMS-E35 and my processor is an AMD Phenom II X4 965 @ 3.4Ghz (125W)
I just realized today that my CPU, is not on the list of supported of processors. The maximum wattage listed is 95W! and my CPU is 125W.
I came across this by looking up what hexacore (6) processor I can use with my board; AMD Phenom II 1065T is listed and it's a 95W. But seeing that I'm running a CPU that is listed at 125W, would it stand to reason that a Phenom II 1100T (125W) would/should work?
My computer works fine, I play games often, watch movies, listen to music etc. Experiencing no problems whatsoever with my current setup. I just want to max out my system.
