5.0 out of 5 stars Phenom II Black Edition, 16 Nov. 2011
This review is from: AMD HDZ965FBGMBOX Phenom II X4 965 - 3.4 Ghz AM3 Black Edition CPU (Personal Computers)
The Phenom II 965 is superb processor with lots of potential. The 3.4Ghz is easily put to use by any decently set up system with the correct motherboard, bios and if you really want some overclocking software. I recommend AMD overdrive in terms of software and it's free from the AMD website. For newbies to pc building... DO NOT put this in a "compatable" AM2+ socket motherboard. You will only end up slowing your system down. Use an AM3 or AM3+ socket motherboard with a 4 pin fan power connection.

Enjoy

Hi Findlay,
Would you be able to recommend a decent AM3+ MOBO which compliments this CPU? Preferably within a £30 - £40 price bracket. Thanks for the info.
