Hi everybody,

I've a question please. I'm planning to buy an MSI 870A-G54 mainboard that is compatible with the following AMD Phenom II X4:
Prozessor

Core Name: Deneb
CPU Code: HDZ955FBK4DGI
CPU No: 955
FSB: 200
CPU Speed: 3,20 GHz
L2: 2MB
L3 6 MB
Stepping: C2
Watt: 125

I've asked the MSI support if I could use the following processor, but they just said if it's not in the list they can't say if it works:

Core Name: Deneb
CPU Code: HDZ955FBGMBOX
CPU No: 955 Black Edition
FSB: 200
CPU Speed: 3,20 GHz
L2: 2 MB
L3: 6MB
Stepping: C2
Watt: 125


It may be a really stupid question but shouldn't this one work? It's basically the same just with a different CPU Code. I just want to be sure as it's the first time I'm building a PC on my on. And I'm a bit angry about the MSI support because they didn't give me any proper answer.....

So maybe someone here can help me
