I have an Opteron 1389. Basically this is a Phenom II processor.

My question is simply, will this CPU work in the Giga GA-78LMT-USB3?

So before testing, I don't want to set this new board up and simply get a no post as it would waste valuable time.

Watcha guys think?

It's a decent chip. I've benched it. 2893mhz stable was what I got from it on the Server board. It'll probably go much faster on a better board too..... But not my intentions.

I just didn't see it supported on the list and thought it a good idea to ask! Thanks. Maybe I'll test it today. Can't wait to get my rig back!!! :D

Any AM3 CPU should work on any AM3 MB, just to be on the safe side, check the MB CPU support 1st :rofl:

Not exactly true my friend. Depends on the AGESA codes in the bios. Unsupported CPU's may or may not be included in the AGESA package in the bios programming. It's fairly easy to add them if they're not, but that's not the point.

Dood. read the post directly above yours. Or learn to read fully through a person's post.

Already stated it was NOT on the list.

Smart Alex. :mad:

There are three possibilities here short of updating the bios microcode:

1. It won't post
2. It will post and be functional without full performance
3. It will be fully functional with the possibility it may be incorrectly identified

That's my experience with these things.
