Supported CPU's

I am running an AMD Mobile Athlon 64 4000+ cpu in this motherboard as I type, which is the fastest socket 754 cpu ever made. The bios correctly identifies it (I have latest BETA bios), tho it will not work right for some reason at 13x multiplier and 200fsb. I have to make it higher fsb and lower multi like 11.5x to get it to run at full speed or higher. Therefor, this motherboard should support ALL socket 754 cpu's. Please do not yell at me if you have proof otherwise- as I've only had this cpu and my athlon 64 3000+ to test with on this board :)

the 13x multi for the 4000+ newark works now. I don't know why it was messing up when I first installed the cpu, but at first I didn't notice the multi went above 11.5x. You just have to keep scrolling down in the bios options for multi and it will keep going down to 13x. I'd recommend you stay between an 11 and 12 multi and overclock the fsb. With the stock cooler i got 2.8ghz okay for a while, 11.5 * 250. Now I upgraded to the stock 939/am2 cooler that has a copper base and heatpipes; 3ghz 12 * 250 stable :) no higher than 50C when maxed out. Though I had to mod the retention bracket *heavily* to make the cooler fit. The heatpipes were in the way so i cut out all of it besides right next to the screws that hold it on for the two tabs that hold the cooler on. hehe.

I don't know that this mobo support Turion 64 cpus.
But i read that k8n-e deluxe support the cpu, and turion 64 was tested with a k8n mobo by cpu-world staff.
I would like to buy a turion cpu and i have k8n with 1006 BIOS.

ASUS K8N with Athlon 64 Mobile 4000+

What beta BIOS was that? I have an ASUS K8N Ai series board which will not post with the 4000+ mobile chip no matter what I do. I have the latest official BIOS for the board.

4000+ will work

Mine worked with the most recent BIOS as of this writing using a 12x multiplier + a 217MHz FSB.
