Depends on your motherboard specs; some older oem boards by hp or dell have a cpu limit of 65-95 watts. If the 6000 is over 95 watts, then it may not post. IF your board is non oem and is listed on the manufacturer's website, then look under "cpu support". Hp lists some cpu options on it's website; dell doesn't.
