Hi all,

New here to this forum and was hoping someone could help out here.

I have a Chaintech S1689 motherboard that is currently running a AMD Athlon 64 Venice 3000 cpu. Can anyone tell me if I can run a faster processor and if so, what is the max? Any recommendations? I'm into lot's of video editing. The 3000 is fine, just felt I can afford to buy a faster processor at this time.

the chaintech website says it will support FX processors and with a bios update they will support dual core, so i would imagine anything in a 939 pin should work.
