In another of your posts, you said you have a ACER RS740DVF motherboard and a AM2 single-core processor. Then you replaced it with a AM2+ Athlon Dual-core 'Black Edition" processor. I'm assuming the 65W is your single-core AM2, and your 95W is your "black edition" AM2+ CPU?
We need to know what your two processors are (model, make, revision, etc). Why?
Example: Athlon 64 X2 6000+ comes in:
- Windsor 90nm, F2 or F3, 95W or 125W
- Brisbane 65nm, G1 or G2, 89W
Because your have Acer motherboard, not all of the CPUs will work, due to the the BIOS used, and/or simply lack of compatibility. And having used Acer products before, they rarely have new BIOSes; just the one flashed to the board.
The Acer RS740DVF is a Foxconn RS740M03A1 motherboard, and it uses a AM2 socket. It uses a ATI RS740 SB700 Marvell 8071 UATX chipset (a.ka. 740G)
I know for a fact that Acer uses AM2+ CPUs with this board on different model systems, and they most likely use newer/upadted BIOSes for them. Also, non-OEM boards with the 740G chipset can support AM2/AM2+/AM# processors.
So with that said, I think you need to grab hold of a different BIOS that supports AM2+. Another option is to get rid of your AM2+ and get a AM2 Athlon 64 X2 dual-core processor instead (like a 64 X2 5000+, 6000+. 4800+ etc). Anyways, Acer boards don't have any overclocking options (they disabled them somehow), so no point buying a "Black Edition" as you can't even touch those features.
PS: if you look at my sig, that system with the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ is the Acer system that I have. It uses a OEM version of the Foxcoon 690G motherboard. It has a AM2 socket, but can use AM2+ processors....but with the BIOS I am stuck with, I can't. I just replaced it with the fastest AM2 I could find...in that case the Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0GHz.
