Default Re: new processor

run cpu-z to get the full name.
CPUID

Or go to the manufactures website and look up the supported cpu for you motherboard.


ECS GF8100VM-M5 (V1.0)
Here is the cpu list for the above motherboard.
ECS Web Site

No 940 on the current list you need to check if there has been a bios update to support it.
