M2N68-LA (Narra5) Motherboard Processor upgrade question

I found my motherboard info here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c01701270#N114

TDP: 95W
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
NOTE : Only socket AM2+ processors are supported with this motherboard.

AMD Phenom II Quad-Core
AMD Phenom II Triple-Core
AMD Phenom Quad-Core (A) 9xxx series (AM2+)
AMD Phenom Triple-Core (T) 8xxx series (AM2+)
AMD Athlon X4
AMD Athlon X3
AMD Athlon X2 (B) (AM2+)

And I just ordered...

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5800+
MPN ADA5800IAA5DO
UPC 0683728219130

Clock Speed 3 GHz

CPU Socket Type Socket AM2+
Multi-Core Technology Dual-Core
TDP 89 W

Cache Memory
Level 1 Size 128 KB
Installed Size L2 1 MB ( 2 x 512 KB )


Will this work with my motherboard ?

I assume so but I never upgraded before and just doing a paranoid check....


Thanks.

  1. Yep - you're good. Don't forget to clean the base of the cpu cooler and to use TIM (thermal interface compound) when you put the cooler back on the new cpu.
  2. The ADA5800IAA5DO is an AMD socket AM2 CPU. The information you wrote is NOTE: ONLY the socket AM2+ processors are supported with this motherboard. The ADA5800IAA5DO is not an AM2+ CPU.

    "The best CPU it supports is the Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 89W. It also supporst any AMD Athlon 64 & AMD Sempron processor with a speed rating below 4000+. "

    Very confused now. :??:

    Looks as if it is supported on the M2N68-LA (Narra3-GL8E), but that is not the motherboard you listed. There is also a M2N68-LA (Narra6), which is not the one you listed.

  5. So , I need a Am2+ processor....

    Power question now.

    My TDP is: 95W
    So I can use a 95W or less processor ...or do I have to stick with a 95w one?
