HI Team AMD!
i have a AMD Athlon II X3 435 (2.9ghz) processor which is with me for 1 year and i want to upgrade it to AMD FX-9590 (4.7 ghz) and my motherboard is AM3
RAM 8GB DDR3 PC12800
VGA GT 630 2GB 128BIT DDR3
What is your motherboard make and model? Only certain high end motherboard are capable of driving the FX-9000 series.
my motherboard is BIOSTAR N68S3 DDR3 + SEMPRON AM3 140 2.7GHZ
The answer is no.
No. you can't. am3 < am3+. you need to buy a new mainboard 990fx series for that cpu.
Well ok thank you so much foryour support.
Oh yeah by the way which latest processor my mainboard can take plz guide me which one whould be the best. Thanks

BIOSTAR :: Motherboard
thanks h\guys just one time more help hehe
i was searching for mainboards and i found out that Asus A68HME is under my pocket so is it good one? and untill what latest kind of processor i can upgrade on Asus A68HME.
The FX-9590 and FX-9370 require a special mobo and special CPU cooling because the FX-9590 and FX-9370 are 220w TDP CPUs vs. the std. FX-8000 CPUs which are only 125w TDP.
The top model mobos from Asrock, Asus and Gigabyte that are specifically designed to power the FX-9370 and FX-9590 are good mobos. Asrock has three suitable models in the Fatality 990FX Professional, the Fatality 990FX Killer and the 990FX Extreme9. The above mobo makers list the CPUs supported for each model mobo they sell on their website so you know for sure what CPU model is supported. Gigabyte also has three proper FX-9590 model mobos in the GA-990FXA-UD7, GA-990FXA-UD5 and the GA-990FXA-UD3. It's easy to confuse their model numbers but you need an "FXA" UD-7, UD5 or UD3 model.
I don't use or recommend Asus mobos as they are the only brand of mobos that I have had fail in 25+ years of building PCs. Asus also uses other companies to produce many of their mobos so there is no telling what the quality will be from one mobo to the next. My experience with Asus customer service on the first defective mobo that failed within three months, resulted in Asus sending a hand soldered repaired dirty, unacceptable replacement mobo that I returned to them and purchased a Gigabyte mobo that is still running fine today years later.
Note: You will also need a Quality PSU of 650w or more, specifically with ~54 amps. or greater on the 12V rail to properly power an FX-9590 or FX-9370. Hardware Secrets.com and JonnyGuru.com properly test and inspect PSUs to determine the quality models.
