I currently have this mobo running an Athlon IIx2 235e.
Looking at the specs on the AMD site chart this processor looks like the same spec more or less as far as requirements go:
http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/processors/athlo...

so my question is
should I be able to swap this dual core 235e I'm running on the ECS MCP61PM-GM
to the quad core 605e without worry?
What will be my advantage of doing this?
Will it kick up the throttle?
They're both 45 watt and the mobo can handle up to 89
Thanks

After reading your post again, I would say yes. If your board is oem (dell, etc) with the nvidia 6150 chipset, then you should be ok; the 605e is 45 watts, so you should be fine.

Bought an amd athlon 605e from buy.com....just completed the install in my wallmart emachine et1331g-03w which originally had an athlon 235e. Device manager shows 4 cores....also had to refresh performance score (Windows experience Index) Processor score is now 7.0. So far so good. Oh, by the way, the processor socket indicated AM2 .....Running Windows 7. Hope this helps.

Just wanted to let you guys know I just got an AMD Phenom II x4 925 2.8ghz off newegg and installed it today and it's working great the motherboard can hold it ides at 30c loads at 50c. I can tell you I see the difference in preformance =D. Only thing came with a small heatsink and fan; little smaller then the stock one from what i could tell but I used it for the warrenty
