Hi Gerbils, I have been looking for a new CPU to extend some of the life left in my scraped together system. However I am somewhat confused by the motherboard's
approved CPU list as there seems to me at least inconsistencies with CPU support. For example most of the Phenom II X4 8XX series has been skipped, as I am currently tracking down a X4 840, which has the Propus core. The list shows other Propus based CPUs but not the 840. Would it be too risky to try it or should I try and find one on the approved list? I know putting money into a dead system like this isn't really worth it but if I can get squeeze some life out of this for under $60 then I would like to try. So I guess which CPU would be the most best to match the rest of my system in sig? Thanks in advance.
