[Parts Check] MB compatibility help
I was given a brand new
AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE CPU, and want to know if it's compatible with this board : ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0.
I looked at the ASUS CPU Compatibility list , and it shows a 965 125watt cpu, but the part number doesn't match. Can anyone tell me if it's compatible with that board?
If it is compatible then I will need some new memory as well. What memory would you guys recommend?
I'd say yes after looking at this link:
It is the BOX version that is the same as a listed OEM cpu on the qualified cpu support list.
One of the gurus here might need to confirm I'm correct before you part with the $$$.

I read it like you did, but just wasn't quite sure, so thought asking was better than buying blind . Hopefully someone can give me the definitive answer, and help me with the memory as well. Thanks

norwegian is right, the Newegg listing is the boxed/retail version of what's on the Asus list. It will work fine .
