i am wondering if the core2duo cpu would work in an hp pavilion a1616n computer?
also, would the 2.4ghz core2duo e6600 even be better than the stock pentium d 2.8ghz?
would it overheat with the core2duo?
The chipset itself is listed as supporting Core 2 processors. However, this is an OEM computer. This means the support could be limited by the bios to the support listed on HP's website in the link above. OEMs do not provide bios updates. There is a chance it would work though, but I cannot guarantee it.
