AMD Athlon 64 X2 with ASUS A8N-SLI?

By Lizardman

  1. I was reading Korrupts guide to getting a new computer, and I am looking at the MOBO (Motherboard-ASUS A8N-SLI Premium Socket 939) and CPU (AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ Manchester) that he recommended, then I noticed that the MB's specs said that the supported CPU was Athlon 64 FX/Athlon 64 and made no mention of the 64 x2... The MB has the right socket (939) but would the CPU be able to run? :confused: Thanks in advance!

    btw, the links to the parts on newegg are right here:

    Yeah, its fine. I run the same board and a 4400+ X2 and no problems at all. Actually, the chipset fan on the motherboard keeps dying on me, but that may be due to my power supply not cutting it.
