Four MSI µATX boards do support 125W Phenoms
Out of six
Our sources have informed us that MSI claims that its most of its new portfolio of micro ATX motherboards works with Phenom 9850 Black edition 125W CPU. This story comes after Anand's test and our story that you can find here.
MSI motherboards based on AMD 780G, Nvidia Geforce 8200 and AMD 780V chipsets have the PWM (power) design that can support full 125W CPU.
Four of the six MSI motherboards do support 125W CPUs, including K9A2GM-FIH based on AMD 780G chipset, K9N2GM-FIH based on Geforce 8200, K9A2VM-FD based on AMD 780V and K9N2GM-FD based on Geforce 8200 IGP chipsets.
The following boards based on Geforce 8200 and AMD 780V have the PWM power design for maximal 95W CPUs and the list includes K9A2GM-F v2 based on AMD 780V and K9N2GM-F v2 based on Geforce 8200 chipset.
We are expecting some of these motherboards for the test shortly and we will get back to you as soon as we get some details.
