    Default Motherboard CPU Compatibility Question

    Hi, have just bought a new ASRock N68c-gs fx motherboard. I was wanting too know if these type of cpu's are usable a AMD FX-4300 Vishera 3.8GHz (4.0GHz) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4300WMHKBOX or a AMD Athlon II X3 455 Rana 3.3GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Desktop Processor ADX455WFGMBOX. I have looked at the support page and those are not on the list as I can see.

    ummm, yea.

    The below page states what you can use on this board.

    ASRock N68C-GS FX and then click on CPU Support List
    #1 - Please, when seeking help, enter the make and model of ALL parts that your system is comprised of in your Signature, or at least the model #'s in your System Specs, then "Save' it.
    ____If you are overclocking, underclocking, or undervolting any parts, informing us of this and their values would prove beneficial in helping you.

    #2 - G.Skill RAM Configurator for your boardSamsung Memory for your boardLatest AMD Chipset Drivers/WindowsLatest AMD Graphics Drivers/WindowsLatest Intel Drivers

    #3 - Please use the eXtreme Outer Vision Power Supply Calculator found HERE to determine if it might be your PSU at issue.

    Thank you for changing to FX.

    I'm not sure what page you're looking at, but it doesn't excuse the fact that that board does support some AM3+ FX processors. Even some PileDriver CPU's.

    Just because they don't list the BOX p/n's doesn't mean they don't support a certain processor. It only means some work on your part is needed to translate the BOX #'s to OEM/Tray #'s.

    Allow me ........
    AMD Athlon II X3 455 - ADX455WFK32GM / ADX455WFGMBOX
    The ADX455WFGMBOX translates to ADX455WFK32GM and is plainly supported by ALL BIOSs.

    And whether AMD is still making a proc or not it's nice to be able to say what will or will not work on a board. Media servers don't req a fast proc so knowing what is the lowest denominator per board, outdated or otherwise, is nice. Better to be told, as is, than guess?

    Eh, we all at one time or another do that. No problems. The older we(I!) get the seemingly more often it occurs. Heaven forbid you managed an FM proc in an AM3+ socket.

    I'll bet should you call ASRock, seeing it is now stating support for some Piledriver FX's(and a messy support page, looks unfinished like someone took lunch and forgot about finishing it) that that 4300 Vishera you mention in your first post might be supported too. Vishera microcode is, to the best of my knowledge, the same support regardless of which Vishera. BUT, I'd call first before investing in one.

    Better yet, send a PM to "ASRock TSD - Emily" using THIS link and ask about FX-4300 support on the board. She readily responds to PM's and is a valuable asset here at TweakTown.
