Asus should list on their website what CPUs fit your PC/mobo. You may need a BIOS upgrade and be limited based on the mobo design for low power CPUs.

CM1630 is equipped with AMD Phenom™ II/Athlon™ II/ Phenom™/ Athlon™/ Sempron™™ processor and the dual-channel DDR3 memory is providing a much broader bandwidth than DDR2, which can process data with more efficiency and higher speed. Optional NVIDIA or ATI graphic cards can also provide high quality images and vivid visual enjoyment, allowing you to enjoy the multi-media any time you want.

I would garner that it supports up to 125w Phenom II's X4 but not thubans....
