  1. heya guys, I'm half way through building my new system I currently have the Asrock M3A790GXH/128M motherboard and i am looking to buy the Athlon II quad core 620 as I can get it pretty cheap.

    My question is on the asrock site it says "Support for Socket AM3 processors: AMD Phenomâ„¢ II X4 / X3 (except 920 / 940) and Athlon II X4 / X3 / X2 processors"

    However in the cpu support list it says that it does support it?

    Can any one clear this up for me?

    The asrock K10nSLI board says it does not support the athlon 620 on its current bios, however this is not true.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :slurp:

    Just solved my own problem haha, feel pretty stupid for asking now it says phenom not athlon!

    The Athlon II X4 620 should work fine on that ASRock.
