Fastest AM2+ CPU I can install? [B]CASCADE[/B] - you HERE???


Title asks it all here - what's the fastest CPU that I can put into an AM2+ socket?

I have 2 home-builts, 1 BioStar TA790GX 128M, and a FoxConn A7DA-S, both with AM2+ socket, and both right now have Athlon 64x2 6400+, which used to be about the fastest AMD dual core...

I want to go just a little faster here with both boxes.

Ideas? Experiences?

Supported CPUs for the Biostar mainboard: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/...p?S_ID=377#cpu
Sadly, for the Foxconn board such a list does not seem to exist.

Thanks TobiSGD , saves me soem searching time.

So for the biostar, its Phenom II X4 940/945.

According to this list the A7DA-S can go to Phenom II X4 955-

It might run with a Phenom II X6, but the only way to know would be to email foxconn. I'd guess that the max is still X4 955.
