939Dual-SATA2 with adapter AM2 CPU board bios 2.30
http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=939Dual-SATA2&o=All
is possible to support for processors Atholn II X2 or X3 or X4?
alternatively 7750BE

Thanks
There is a problem with the socket power limitation to a maximum of 65W...
The highest wattage consuming processor supported by AsRock is the old Athlon 64 X2 4400+ Rev. E6 and the AM2 Athlon 3800+ (ADD3800IAA5CU)(through AM2 CPU board), both about 50 - 65W depending on the manufacturing place... So maybe you can be helped to add BIOS-support for the processor but I think you have to limit your wishes to 65W! ;-)

This info is False.. THE 939Dual-SATA2 can handle 89watt processors. You can drop a 6000+ 3.0GHz, 3.1GHz or the 6400+ 3.2GHz and it will work. It may not show up in the BIOS correctly but it will work perfectly.. I have a 6000+ that runs at 3.1GHz but the BIOS reports it as AMD 3.0ghz 2 core even though the CPU is running at 3.1GHz..
As for X3 and X4 support. That's not going to happen.. The bios chip doesn't have enough memory to support tripe core and quad core CPU's. It's only a 2mb chip.
The current BIOS can only support AM2 CPU's.. NO AM2+, NO AM3, NO AM3+ support.
