  1. I just bought a amd64 3200+ 939S and a K8N Neo4 msi MB..

    http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=K8N_Neo4_Platinum&class=mb

    It says it supports 3500+ 3800+ and fx's BUT is there any chance that it would work with a 3200+?! man i really blew it.. i was on deciding between the 3500+ and 3200+ too grr.. I went with the 3200+ .90 micro so i can overclock it easier.

    So is there any chance or should i return it?

    Also it was my first time ordering online from newegg.. How do i return the cpu?
    Thanks

    Don't worry, that 3200 will work fine on your mobo. I've seen numerous 'signatures' on the web of people having that CPU/mobo combination.

    They mention only those higher-value CPUs, so that people will know that the mobo ALSO supports 3500, 3800 etc., in other words, it'll take any AMD64-S939 that you throw at it.

    If I had not won an Abit AV8-3rdEye mobo in a competition, I would have bought exactly what you just got.
