It tells you right in the CPU supported list,

AMD Phenom™ II X4 quad-core desktop processor 965/955/945/925/910/910e (6 MB L3 cache, 2 MB L2 cache, 512 KB L1 cache; 3.40/3.20/3.00/2.80/2.60/2.6 GHz, DDR3 1333 MHz, 140 (125 W)/125 (95 W) 125 (95 W) /95/95/65 W
The 965/955/945 (and a couple of others) are all 125W CPU's. You can confirm what they are here,
