Hi all, I tried to upgrade my t6216 (3200+, MSI K8NGM2-L to an opteron 165-it should work see (www.msi.com.tw/program/products/mainboard/mbd/pro_mbd_cpu_support_detail.php?UID=702&kind=1). My PSU is an ATX coolermaster rated at 29amps on the dual 12v rails and 430 watts with a BFG7950GT card and just the one internal hardrive. The opteron did not even POST though. I had my bios updated by emachines in July 2006. Emachines won't answer any questions about the bios and its been greyed out all over the place, I suspect this is the problem? Any ideas on how to get this processor working? I have a technician to help me. Otherwise I will just get a new motherboard and case as i cant see any microATX boards that are worthwhile buying if i get a new board. I will be using the opteron for statistical modelling using large datasets in R "not overclocking" although a little bit wouldnt hurt with a good board.
