Can someone suggest motherboards that support the athlon x2 125 watt model adx6000iaa6cz processor? I have one sitting in my closet collecting dust that needs to be used.

Below are two links. The first is to The boards there are using old chipset technology.

The second link is to a site I have personally bought from. The boards are mostly refurbished but may have better specs and be cheaper.

Do your homework.

You need to verify the board can support the 125W processor.

AMD main chipsets are much more accommodating that Intel ones regarding backward compatibilty - whether you can install older cpus.

This is an AM2 cpu
but it can be installed in AM2+ mboards. It can be installed in many AM2 (940 pin) or newer mboards that use DDR2 ram.The cpu supports up to and inc. PC2-6400 ram

However, there were a few early AM2+ models that CANNOT support 125watt cpus because of inadequate circuit traces and / or inadequate voltage regulator amperage capacity (which was stupid because many AM2 mboards do support 125 watt cpus). The AM2+ retail mboards that DO support 125 watt cpus often have obvious mentions of them supporting at least that if not up to 140 watt cpus.
Or - simply look at the cpu support lists for the model

I have installed one of these (and a 6400+), in an Asus M2N-E SLI, then an Epox AM2 mboard, and now in an Asus M3A78 Pro mboard (AM2+), and it works fine.

Go here:

search using: ADX6000IAA6CZ

in any brand of mboard that has AM2+ listings.

I would like to thank both you, OtheHill and Tubesandwires, for the information on a motherboard that was compatible with the Amd Athlon 64 x2,
I used both the information's to locate a board at 3BTech: The Biostar A760G M2+. I have order it and hope everything works out OK.
Again Thanks.

Thanks for the thanks.

Do you have a proper heat sink for it ?

The 6000+ and 6400+ cpus I bought came in an AMD boxed set with an excellent fan / heat sink with heat pipes.

The 6000+ cpu runs cool with that fan / heat sink combo. I don't think it's ever exceeded 50 C.

Yes I have the same heat sink/fan that came with the boxed cpu.
