Compatible CPU

I was wondering if my motherboard on my HP Pavilion a6000n (Asustek M2N68-LA) is compatible with an AMD Phenom x4 9600 CPU. I remember somewhere it said it could be compatible up to the x4 9600(95w) but I cant find where it said that and I'm unsure whether it would be compatible. If it's not compatible, whats the next best quad core CPU that is?

EDIT: I found a modded BIOS: http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-Asus-M2N68-LA-Narra3-bios-v-5-10-hp
Will this make the motherboard compatible with am3 CPUs and is it safe to use?

Also this link: http://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-M2N68-LA-Narra3-support-for-AMD-Phenon-II-x4-Black-Edition
Someone mentions having a phenom II x4 95w on their board.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  1. No, your motherboard is not compatible with an AMD Phenom X4 9600 CPU.

    Here's the link to the CPUs that are compatible with your board: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00906129&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&lc=en&product=3377269
  2. It says its supports up to 89w Athlon x2 5600+, but can I run the 89w model of the Athlon x2 6000+ (ADA6000IAA6CZ)?
