Processors

Hello, can anyone tell me what processors will work with the P5BW-LA (basswood 3) motherboard. The e6700 i purchased doesn't work, Intel informed me it will work on the basswood 2 i replaced but not the basswood3 I replaced it with ?

Thanks Mark

  1. Welcome to Tom's Forum! :)

    The ASUS P5BW-LA is an OEM MOBO for an HP Pavillion, and because of that has only a limited CPU support for the CPUs that were available for your exact PC.

    Example http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00794696&tmp_track_link=ot_faqs/top_issues/en_us/c00794696/loc:3&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3307087

    note - only the Intel Core 2 Duo E6400 (C) DC 2.13 GHz listed in this example.

    Therefore, whenever I see this type post I recommend that you contact HP; often they make a mistake to ask them to email you a list.

    HP Contact -> http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/contacthp?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3307087

    It would be nice if you could post whatever they send you for others...
  2. Thank you very much for your help.
  3. ^ No, those OEM MOBO are VERY - VERY limited with their CPU_ID info, and if the CPU_ID info is missing the CPU, at best, is dummied down and will poorly function.
