Something doesn't sound right.....confused

Quote:
XFX states that their nForce 750a SLI motherboard supports the 95W TDP AMD Socket AM2+ CPUs. One thing to note is I was able to install and run all of our standard motherboard tests with the 125W TDP AMD Phenom X4 9850 CPU we use for our AMD platform. At no point were issues found with this combination in running any of the tests and in fact the performance was the highest on this combination in almost every test. Also tested on this board was an AMD Phenom x4 9950 which was just released. The 9950 has a TDP of 140W and no issues were found with that CPU on this board.


So it would be safe to put a 140W cpu into this 95W motherboard? Sounds like either the chip will wear this mobo out real fast, or the mobo doesn't have enough power to see this chip's full potential. Maybe with some liquid cooling it would be able to dissipate quickly enough? Please help I just got this combo for xmas(with the 9950 chip)oops Not sure what to do
