your CPU exploded? whoa!


Crosshair is AM2 socket, right?

Phenom II X4 940BE - is AM2+ socket compatible
http://products.amd.com/en-us/RecommendedMBResult.aspx?f1=AMD+Phenom™+II+X4&f2=940&f3=C2&f4=AMD&f5=&f6=Asus&f7=ATX&f8=125.000&

That proc won't work with that board...
Upgrade your board if you want a Phenom II X4 940BE.
