Indeed, the upgrade information you posted clearly states the TDP max & the processors it'll take.  The one he wants to use isn't on them. I believe it's because the FX-6300 is an AM3+ & the motherboard doesn't support those at all.


CPU: i7 3930k @ 4.6GHz 1.29V (Corsair H110-cooled) ~ Motherboard: Asus RoG Rampage IV Extreme 
RAM: G.Skill Sniper Gaming Series (4x4GB 2133MHz, CL9) ~ PSU: Corsair AX 1200W ~ Case: Enermax Fulmo GT
GPUs: 3x HIS R9 290X Reference (Core) Editions in TriFire, Max Load Temps: 71C/70C/71C during OC testing :-P

Go for the phenom ii x4 for decent all-around performance. Quite cheap these days also.

Until, of cource, you decide for a complete system overhaul and get yourself a nice core i7.


gigabyte X58A-UD3R rev.2, core i7 975 3.9ghz (stock voltage), windows 8.1 64-bit, corsair 12gb DDR3 1600mhz 7-7-7-20 RAM, xfx HD 5970 + gigabyte HD 5970 (950mhz/ 1100mhz), coolermaster ultimate 900w PSU.
