Does amd 240e processor support NF725gtm-p31 motherboard.As on the manual it says only 95W and this processor is 45W.


Yes this MSI mainboard supports the AMD Athlon II X2 240e CPU.

45Watt is less than 95Watt therefore it is well within the limits of the mainboard.

If you can, see if you can get the AMD Athlon 245 or 250. It cost only a little more but you get a higher clock speed and they will also work in your mainboard.

I have at current a AMD sempron 3400+1.80GHz processor,socket AM2(940)core VID 1.100V,core speed 1002.2 MHz,bus speed 200.4MHz,HT link 801.7 MHz,stepping 2,L1 data and inst 64 KBytes-2-way,level 2 256...


The main thing is before you go swapping cpu there are some things to consider. 1. the new processor may draw more power than your current power supply can push out. 2. it will probably generate a lot more heat...both are bad..

But if you insist you can get away with an Athlon 64 X2 5600 or 6000+ cpu be careful though because some have different voltages which may not work with your board.

hope that helps.

What we really need to know is the socket type for the AMD. AMD makes sockets 939, AM, AM2, AM2+, AM3, etc. www.newegg.com will be the best friend you could ask for. I highly suggest their expert forums and chats as well, they'll help if someone here doesn't. But either way still need to know what socket that amd is. 5200, or 4200 or something like that is also more descriptive, thats how they ID their products. Mine is an AMD phenom II 920. Good proc.
