Will an Athlon x4 750k work on an aahd3-bc motherboard?

According to the one website I've read, that had specs, this board only works with APU's. Am I misinformed? It doesn't make sense to me that a board would only support integrated graphics, especially when you could effectively turn your apu into a plain CPU anyway with a dedicated gpu. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks, John.

    It is an FM1 board so the Athlon 750K (socket FM2) will not work has to be 6xx series. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c02967715#N60
  2. Yes it should work. Basically the GPU portion of that chip is disabled. You will of course need a dedicated GPU and the video outputs on your motherboard will not work.
  3. Ah good point, if the motherboard is FM1 then it won't work with an FM2 CPU.
