Hello,

I have about 8 weeks prior to the AMD Phenom II x4 965 Black Ed. Processor purchased. I'm running on my Windows computer, a rating system and this for me was quite frightening. Before I had the AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE, I had an AMD Athlon X2 3200 X64. My rating system is just the processor at 3.7!

My system:
Mainboard: FOXCONN A7GM-S
Graphic card: AMD/Sapphire Radeon HD 7770
Prozessor: AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE

Windows 7, your current reading sould be in the 7's. however, that being said, the WEI is a horrible benchmark, and its great for a self-pat-on-the-back, but its really bad for comparing systems.

That would present another problem, lol, you might have upgraded to far, esentially the motherboard doesn't know what to do with the chip, so you might be hosed. other option is to contact foxconn and ask if a bios update is available, or if one can be made available.

 

[edit]Looked at the list, might not just be updated, does the motherboard when it posts, ID the CPU correctly? name, mhz, cache,? etc?

ID is right, Name too, Cache I don't know, MHz is at 800mhz at first. Then I multiple it to 3,4ghz. :/

might be an idea to get a new motherboard, new low end models like the M5A97 are UEFI and feature rich

Such boards can use any old AM3 CPU or one of the newer AM3+ processors fine.
