My Sempron 140W died on me and I got refund. I want to buy new CPU for MSI 785GM-E51 board and was wondering whether Sempron X190 would work with this board.
It is NOT currently on supported CPU list but it should be pretty close to AMD Athlon X2 250 in specifications. However I am after low power consumption CPU as I want to build linux box which will run 247 and X2 190 is 45W compared to Athlon X2 250 which is 65W.
I would have to go either with AMD Sempron 145 (45W), AMD Sempron X2 190 (45W) or AMD Ahtlon X2 250 (which is 65W)
Biostar boards with same 785G chipset support X2 190. What about MSI 785GM-E51? Is it safe or is this long shot.
