The CPU support list for the motherboard does not include the second one, only the first one. I don't believe there's a Black Edition 945.

You have to be careful when choosing a 945 that the model is HDX945WFK4DGI. HDX945FBK4DGI is a 125W version of the CPU and the motherboard only supports 95W CPUs. HDX945WFK4DGM is a later version of this CPU and given that no later Phenoms are validated for use of the motherboard, that may not work, either. There's a chance than a 95W Phenom IIx4 not specifically validated by the motherboard works, but that's a crapshoot.

Also, your BIOS has to be updated to at least P1.60 to run the 945.
