  • Does processor with wattage 125w compatible with the motherboard support up to 95w?

    Hi all,
    I currently have a MSI ms-7597 ver 1.2, as i hang around the MSI specs site, I found out that this board supports maximum 95w processor (AMD phenom ii V6 1065T) : http://www.msi.com/support/mb/GF615MP33_v1.2FOR_EUP.html#support-cpu
    *GF615M-P33 V1.2 is the same version as my board.


    However there is a later version of this phenom ii V6 processor which uses 125 w (phenom ii V6 1055T and 1090T) http://www.amd.com/en-us/products/processors/desktop/phenom-ii


    Will this effect the board at all? can i still use the 125 w one?

    You would really need to check with MSI to find out the list of supported CPUs.

    BIOS support and cooling are the too main issues.
