    Hi guys,

    I currently have a GA-MA78GM-S2H (rev.1.1) and am thinking of dropping a quad core in there to give my system a boost.

    Would the AMD Phenom II 965 3.40GHz (140 watt) or 955 3.20GHZ (125 watt) be supported by this board? I remember reading a while ago that some boards couldn't support quads due to wattage or something along those lines.

    Would be cooled by a TT120.

    I just looked on the gigabyte site and the board won't run 965 or the 955:( .But it will run the 945 on the f8 bios :D.
    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news
