Is the FX 8320 compatible with the

Hey guys!

I'm thinking of upgrading to the FX 8320 but I don't know if it's compatible with my current MoBo.

Current CPU:FX 6100

Current MoBo: GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3

Current PSU: Corsair TX 750


Its compatible but I wouldn't recommend it. It pulls too many watts for long term safe use on that board. You can use it but there may be long term damage to both the processor and motherboard.

Ok!  Thanks.

Agreed with what thecaveman said. Get a 990FX board if you are going with an 8 core. The Asus M5A99FX series are very good and not too expensive.
