Compatible or Not

  Press Man 22:00 25 Nov 08

Hi Guys,

Can anyone tell me if this CPU & motherboard are compatible, AMD CPU AM2 6000+ and Asus M3N78 PRO MB. I have looked at the specs for both but can't be sure if they are?

Thanks in advance.

OK, Looks like they are not compatible. Can anyone suggest an Asus MB, ATX size that will be compatible with the AM2 6000+ cpu?

Anyone have any thoughts on my post of the 26/11? Especially the mobo and cpu.

It seems that you did not understand the CPU supported listed on the site that I posted


AMD Sempron LE-1300
AMD Sempron 3800+
AMD Athlon 64 4000+
AMD Athlon 64 FX-62
AMD Athlon 64 LE-1640
AMD Athlon X2 BE-2400
AMD Athlon X2 6400+
AMD Phenom X3 8750‚AMD Phenom X4 9950

So an AMD CPU AM2 6000+ would work on the Asus M3N78 PRO MB

AMD Athlon™ X2 6000+ 3 GHz Dual-Core Processor

AMD Athlon™ X2 6400+ 3.2 GHz Dual-Core Processor

You are correct, missed that, thanks for confirming. I have changed my choice, to save a few pounds. As you will see from my post of the 26/11, choice is now mobo Asus M3A78, AMD CPU AM2 5200 Dual Core Athlon 64, Socket AM2 940 PIN. I think that these are compatible!

Yes the Athlon 64 X2 5200 2.70GHZ would also work

Thanks ambra4, I will go with the M3A78 & the 64 X2 5200.
