I have an Asus M5A97 Rev 1.82 motherboard 140 watt and a AMD

Customer Question

I have an Asus M5A97 Rev 1.82 motherboard 140 watt and a AMD FX8370 125 watt cpu. Asus says that this motherboard will only support up to a AMD FX8350. The M5A97 Rev 2.0 will support the FX8370 125 watts. But even though the FX8370 is not listed will it work with the original M5A97 Rev 1.82, 140 watt board?
