  1. good morning sirs, i'm looking for some advice as to a new cpu to fit in my current mobo. My current mobo is a Biostar GF8100 M2+ TE AM2+ socket, the CPU im hoping to upgrade to is a AMD Phenom II x4 945. Just want to make sure it will work as i have found conflicting info on whether it will fit my socket type.

    Link to my Mobo page: http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/content.php?S_ID=380

    Ebay CPU Link: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/AMD-PHENOM-II-X4-Quad-Core-945-CPU-3-0GHz-/320590353795?pt=AU_Components&hash=item4aa4ac9583

    Thanks for any help you can provide :)

    The Biostar has an AM2 socket.
    The AMD Phenom II x4, as I recall, is AM3

    I could be wrong as I am on the road and have no information in front of me.

    thanks heaps for the replies guys, i just wanted to make sure as the info for the core on the ebay page does say AM3/AM2+/AM2 and i wasnt sure if he was mistaken and whatnot. never hurts to have a second opinion! :D thanks again for the help and fast reply.

    EDIT: plus one of the info pages i found for the core said it was 125w, 95w being the max i can support.
