Shouldn't you be contacting HP tech support???

I don't see anywhere it says "95w cpu limitation", but if it does have this limitation, using a 125w cpu will burn out the voltage regulators.

Your motherboard does support higher TDP processors. HP quotes upgrade compatibility for all Phenom II X4 9XX processors. So nothing to worry about.

And please don't bump threads so fast. Its bad practise. Learn to have some patience if you need proper answers.

Here you go. I purchased the AMD Phenom ii X4 980 Black for my HP PC that supports only a TDP of 95W. Installed the chip and powered the computer up. Immediately a red message popped up saying .... Unsupported processor. Called AMD tech support who informed me without hesitation that the reason was or is the TDP value. AMD did however tell me that HP sell and OEM 980 that will run on a 95w modo. I called HP parts who had no idea what the heck I was talking about. At the end of the day, I decided to go ahead and purchase the AMD Phenom ii x4 3.3Ghz 850. Frys have this processor for $109.00.
