Me, and if the manual is right.... I can use the following.

Processor Support
See pdf...
download7309v2.0(G52···x150.pdf 7555207 bytes


I kind of thought of upgrading the processor to a dual core (as the board says it can support).

I have been kind of looking at some of these...

»en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AM···on_64_X2

Main thing I need to know is if I am on the right track.... I noticed that some processors are AMD2 (940 pin) and are less than 95w. I am going to go on the assumption I can use those correct?

edit: copied wrong link.. my bad!

*******Edit 2: included pdf of manual I have:

I believe this is the fastest you can put in there... »www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a···19103885

If I decide to go with just a dual core would the link I have above be on the right track?

I was looking at this one...

Dual core...

Athlon 64 X2 5600+ (F3) 2800 MHz 2 × 1024 KB 1000 MHz 14x 1.30/1.35 V 89 W Socket AM2 December 12, 2006 ADA5600IAA6CZ

Here was an energy efficient one... (dual core)

Athlon 64 X2 5200+ (F3) 2600 MHz 2 × 1024 KB 1000 MHz 13x 1.20/1.25 V 65 W Socket AM2 February 20, 2007 ADO5200IAA6CZ

Though will keep yours in mind though.

I kinda think at the time of board purchase I bought a pretty good board.

Both will work, but why not max it out at this point? It's very old technology.

I have been contemplating it... don't get me wrong... I just like to keep the low end and high end options open.

Windsor cores aren't on the supported list for your board but you can probably get by with it. You might have to fuss a bit with it or the system may not want to recognize the chip properly/timings might be funky. I'm assuming you are getting a very low price.

yea. I originally bought just the board and the memory (processor was from a dead system, motherboard shot craps and they went and bought new) so I pretty much kept the working parts and built a new system on the cheap.

Here is the link to the board I have...

David,
There are multiple versions of the K9N6 board. There should be a white sticker on the front face of the board that has the model number. Does that number match whatever info you have on your mb (cpuz, Everest, AIDA)? If you flash an incorrect bios version, (depending on the board) it can be bricked. Also do NOT use the bios update software that comes with the board. Go to MSI's forum and find their forum bios flasher tools. I used a 4gig thumb drive and it worked flawlessly.
I bought (fleabay) what I thought was a -V2 board but it turned out to be a K9N6PGM2-V. Not what I expected but it runs fine and I got it cheap so I didn't hassle the seller. Still, you have a MUCH broader range of compatible cpu's to choose from than I do so I'm jealous .
I have done a lot of research on both boards (V, V2). The mosfets are weak so don't go crazy with overclocking. If you replace the cpu the 95 watt versions are the best you can do. If you install one not on the approved list it may show as an unknown cpu. So far I haven't found any posts anywhere that shows that it was a problem.
Here is a link that gives detailed info on cpu's....

What is interesting is that it states multiple times "95w CPU ONLY", but in the CPU Support Tab, they have 125w X4's listed.

Yes, I noticed that too. After reading about the mosfets popping with the 125's I decided to stick with the 95 watters. I currently have a 5000+ in now, looking to buy a Phenom 2 X4.

I found the right manual for it on MSI's website (ironically I still had the copy of the box sticker for it when I mailed in for the $20 rebate).

The manual above is now the correct one.
