Will USA CPU work on UK motherboard?

  eikonuj 23:43 05 May 2005

I am fortunate to be visiting USA in a couple of weeks and will buy an Athlon FX55 CPU if it will work on a UK MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum motherboard. I've a sneaky feeling all compatible CPU's and motherboards are universal but can someone put my mind at ease - please.

CPU's do not have a Nationality. they are the same no matter where you are

Your problem is if it's Faulty when you get it home is it will not be a cheap CPU

Woodchip - it's a gamble but probably worth taking.
