    Fixed the link.
  3. According to your motherboard's spec page: http://h20566.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay/?sp4ts.oid=5080733&spf_p.tpst=kbDocDisplay&spf_p.prp_kbDocDisplay=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c02560084-8%257CdocLocale%253Den_US%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken


    Processor upgrade information

    Max TDP: 95W
    Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
    NOTE: Only Socket AM3 processors are supported with this motherboard.

    AMD Phenom II X6 10xxT Six-Core (Thuban core)

    AMD Phenom II X4 9xx/9xxe/8xx Quad-Core (Deneb core)

    AMD Phenom II X3 7xx/7xxe Triple-Core (Heka core)

    AMD Phenom II X2 5xx (Callisto core)

    AMD Athlon X4 6xx/6xxe (Propus)

    AMD Athlon X3 4xx/4xxe (Rana)

    AMD Athlon X2 2xx/2xxe (Regor)

    AMD Sempron Single Core 1xx (Sargas core)

    The processors you choose must be 95W or less. The ones you list are rated at 125W, meaning they can exceed the 95W safe zone of your MB. The only one I can think of that has a 95W thermal envelope is the Phenom II X6 1035T:

    If you use a hotter CPU, your MB will eventually give out.
  4. So I can get a 1065t? Because that is 95W and so is the 1055t, and the 1045t.
  5. Best answer
    As long as you can be sure it is the 95W version. For instance, the 1055t came in both 125W and 95W versions.
    95W: http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Phenom%20II%20X6%201055T%20-%20HDT55TWFK6DGR%20%28HDT55TWFGRBOX%29.html
    125W: http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Phenom%20II%20X6%201055T%20-%20HDT55TFBK6DGR%20%28HDT55TFBGRBOX%29.html

    Then there is the oft chance that your MB BIOS won't recognize a chip newer than the one it came with. Meaning, it would have to be updated before it would recognize the later chip. But since the specs for your MB seem to indicate that any 10xxt CPU will work, you are probably OK.
  6. Thank you very much clutchc!
