I ocassionally have the same problem, as far as I know, on most games a single core will run the game as opposed to all 3 working in concert. This is espeically true for older games. This is caused by overheating on a single core. If you are overclocking, then you will want to clock it back down to default levels or buying a larger heat sink. If you are not overclocking, then it could be a problem with power usage i.e. you do not have a large enough power supply. If this is the case, then detaching any extra devices would temporarily solve this problem, however, a power supply that can hold more watts is the only permanent solution. There are a few other reasons why this could be happening, but less likely.

I suspect you mean the Motherboard that has the AMD Phenom II x3 710.

If so then find specifications on that motherboard to see what better, faster? CPU is compatible with it.

THIS MAINBOARD SUPPORT THIS PROSESSOR Phenom II X4 920 (2.8GHz, 125W, 2MB total dedicated L2 cache, 6MB L3


Motherboard,

Processor Support (CPU Support),

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=943&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=1&LanID=0

AMD Phenom II X4 model 920, uses .0875 to 1.425 Volts, (DC),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Phenom_microprocessors#.22Deneb.22_.28C2.2FC3.2C_45_nm.2C_Quad-core.29

That is the average voltage range for the AMD Phenom II X 4 processor.

Look back at the AMD Phenom chart again on Wikipedia, and look especially at the voltage range for the 900e to the 945.
Now look at the ECS CPU Support page again, and you'll see your motherboard supports Phenom II X4 processors from 900e to 945.

Since the 910e and the 925 are supported, I know the technology of the 920 is supported.
The Core architecture and nanometer technology it is based on, is supported.
No BIOS update may be needed.


Yes is the answer.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

[NOTE*
That processor can use up to 125 watts of power. You need a decent Power Supply.
That processor also gets H-O-T!
Make sure it has a GOOD cooling system, and the computer case inside, and the Power Supply, inside, are kept clean ]

Power shut down shortly after bios loads


Check the processor and heatsink/fan. If there is a bad contact between the heatsink and the processor, or the fan fails to turn the BIOS will shut the system down to protect the CPU from overheating. I hope this helps.

HI ! I bought a new AMD phenom quad-core 9750 2.40ghz processor and Gigabyte motherboard. I m unable to install Windows and the system automatically shuts down every 20 min and sometimes runs for more...


This processor need better cooling system as it is powerful it need more power so I suggest you to upgrade your Power Supply and buy more efficient processor fan cooler. Also you should check if processor is properly installed on motherboard and there should be some special thermal grease between processor and motherboard (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_grease) for better thermal conductivity

Which is a better processor?


The AMD Phenom x4 is actually cheaper with 4 cpu cores compaired to Core 2 duo which has 2 cpu cores, you will get a better deal for less money on a AMD x4.

Heres a chart you can look at
http://www.tomshardware.com/charts/desktop-cpu-charts-q3-2008/3DMark-Vantage-CPU,817.html

I just got myself the AMD Phenom 9650 for 150usd
The core 2 duo e6600, which I would recommend from the core duo series costs around 200 usd.

Note that the Duo only has 2 cpu cores. You get double the power on a phenom 4x with 4 cpu cores
So the phenom is definitely the best choise! (double the power for 50usd less)

Anything else?
