MSI K9N6GM MotherBoard Install

I just installed an MSI K9N6GM motherboard with a barebones kit. I have 2Gig Memory on the board. I have an AMD Athlon 64 3500 CPU which came with the kit and I purchased and installed a heatsink FAN. My CPU temperature is never reaching above 27 degrees. But the computer will suddenly turn off and the power LED blinks.

You could have a faulty power supply, or something in the motherboard settings could be set to switch the pc off after so many minutes/hours. or you may have a faulty connection which short-circuits in the motherboard or somewhere in the pc, casuing the pc to switch off as a safety feature. this is NOT what it actually is, this is a SUGGESTION.

Chip up grade options!

That
is a socket 754 motherboard. It will support AMD Athlon processors up to Athlon64 3400+. It is a bit long in the tooth by today's standards, and only uses DDR memory, not DDR2. You may get more of a bang for your buck by buying a "barebones" system, which can consist of a motherboard with processor and memory, depending on how much you want in the barebones package.

Typically you use the case, power supply you already have with the new motherboard and processor and ram (memory).

At any rate, if you only want to upgrade your processor, keep in mind that your board only supports up to the Athlon64 3400+. It will support up to DDR 400 ram. You would probably benefit more by buying 2 sticks of 400 DDR ram at 2 gigs each, if you don't have much ram now. If your processor is close to the 3400+, then another processor in that board isn't going to change things much.

Good luck, and write back if you'd like more help.

Memory +cpu upgrade

No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.
