    nope it isn't.
    it says max tdp 95w when new phenomII x4 are 125 or 145
  4. yea but if you do a search on newegg and look at spec on the 9750 which is in the HP now it says 125w and the look at the specs for the new 955 chipset on newegg as well it says 125w but the 965 says 145w which I know that isnt going to work
  5. you've got a point there, better ask hp then.

    missed that
  8. Your will also probably need to flash your BIOS to a more recent version if the motherboard is old
  9. Just curious, did the 95w Phenom II X4 945
    work on your machine???
