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.

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

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.

Dan, that board is old, way past the death date. Don't put anything new on it. Wait for your new board.

Yep, I am. I got the right CPU so the ram will get here sooner or later. Not sure how long before i get the motherboard. Order it tomorrow. Just have to wait on the mail!

Yes, that is quite smart.

One other thing. I have to clean the filters out every week now. Mass quantities of white dust collecting on the three in-going fans. The exhaust fan is clean!! Can't figure out what is white dust? As white as paper! The inside is staying real clean.

More intake fans mean cleaner insides. The opposite for having more exhaust fans.

Have five fans on this case. one in front one on the bottom, Psu fan on botton. One on the case wall blows right where the video card and CPU is. last is the rear fan which is on the top in back. PSU is 120mm blows out the back. The CPU fan blows right into the heat sink.The other three all push air into the cabinet. All fans but the cpu fan are 120mm. Cpu is I think a 90mm but can't remember now. If i think about it i will measure it next time i open it up I was surprised to see there is dust coming thru the case cover on the back side of the motherboard. Can't figure out how its doing that. I like the case! Its doing what i wanted it to do

Wow! You have a CPU cooler that blows air onto the heatsink? I'm shocked...
