    Can the M2-ATX handle the Energy Efficient 65W Athlon64 X2 Dual Core 4400+ CPU?

    I've seen alot of people mention this cpu in the forums but i havent been able to find any post of people actually using this cpu. either im not doing a good job of using the search button or this cpu isn;t really that popular.

    Frys has a pretty good deal on an Energy Efficient 65W Athlon64 X2 Dual Core 4400+ and motherboard for around $98.99 and i was wondering if the M2-ATX will be able to power this???

    I realize i don't need this much power to play a few mp3s but the main reason i want to use something like this is because i can actually goto the store and buy it and if anything was wrong with it i can return it and not have to deal with shipping. also the pricing is pretty attractive

    I recently bought the Turion MT-37 2.0ghz 25watt CPU + a compatible mobo but it turns out somethign was wrong with them and i ended up returning the motherboard 4 times to exhange for a new ones and finally decided to screw the Turion and return it to newegg since it was too much trouble. i don;t know about you but calling newegg everyday to harrass them into accepting a return and driving to UPS 4 times a weeks isn't my idea of fun. Id rather just go to frys and not have to deal with all the online and calling customer service crap.

    Suggest reading this thread in Power Supplies:

    Someone with a lower end Athon has a M2, and people are warning him about the M2 destroying the motherboard / components if the M2 blows.

    I'd suggest something beefier / safer, such as the DSATX.

    And read up..

    I have a s754 mobile sempron for what it is worth. I think the energy efficient ones should be allright, but you might as well add up the power requirement and check.
