Default processor

Have a question for you. New motherboard will handle up to 85 watts. What would happen if you put a 125 watt pcu in it? Would it crash or fry the motherboard? wonder if it would go past bios? The PCU is over-clock able. if you don't do that would it work ok?

The VRM won't be able to handle the current, overheat and crash, or just have a reduced lifespan. It basically means your motherboard's VRM is too basic. It's like overclocking on a bad board.

ok, wasn't sure as they make three different athlon 64X2 6000+ processors. The Windsor is a 125 watt and the other two are Brisbane and 85 watts. Not sure which one my friend is sending me.

Default Re: processor

Sorry I saw it after i posted. Thanks for the guide. That helped! Now i need to wait till i get parts and see what i have. I have the numbers on those processors. adv6000iaa6cz is the 85 watt adx6000iaa6cz is the 125 watt. I hope it is a adv model. I still have the athlon64X2 3800+ that Celery gave me so i can use that for sure. its a 85 watt cpu. Anyway, i should have everything together in a couple of weeks. I just hope it last for awhile. I don't have the bucks right now for any kind of better system. Thanks again, Wd65

The processor came in today. My friend is still looking thru all his stuff to see if he can find some 4 gig chips. The processor is the right one. Link to it below. This time next month i should be up and running.

Why can't you test it now?

Default Re: processor

I am afraid to do anything to the board right now as it has given me about half a dozen scares when the video card crashes. Also it has crashed a couple of times. If i put that more powerful cpu in it just might crash for good. I just hope it will keep working till i can get the new board here.
