the Athlon 64 fx range was the best that fits the am2 socket
i think speeds went up to 3.2 gig but they do have heat worries and they take up to 140watts


ste being in the uk yourself how fast is the site loading ?
reason i ask is because the site is now coming from one of my own machines in the uk
i dumpped my host a while back now

Hi Dave, just been looking at this board and i am confused with the power connections, i have the 24pin connector but instead of a 4pin plug on the board its a 6pin? also there is a molex connector built into the board? how do i go about connecting the psu?

you sure thats a 6 pin and not 8 ?
in most cases you can use a older psu with these motherboards the extra pins on the cpu power socket are to provide more lanes and a more stable voltage to the cpu.

the molex connector was used on some older boards to provide extra power for the pci express video cards it never really did take off because newer cards now plug in to the psu direct.

might be a idea for you to download the manual and have a read of that ste as it should tell you if you can use a older 4pin psu on that board.
