Trying to build a powerful budget XP gaming machine at the moment. I've got a Phenom II X4 965 with a TDP of 125w, the only DDR3 motherboard I have that will socket this CPU is an Asrock 960GM-VGS3 FX but it's only rated for 95w TDP. The board will boot and work fine with the CPU, but I haven't put it under load. I know the 965 will undervolt very well all the way down to around 1.25 or so. Will it work to undervolt this CPU as much as possible and pair it with this board? This board has full XP 32bit support and came with 8GB of free RAM so it will save me quite a bit of money if I can use it.
