The AM2 socket will not work with the Phenom II's HP states that mobo can only support upto the Athlon 64 x2 4800+ And Athlon 64 3800+ singlecore (Not Athlon II's)
And some AMD Sempron models. So you would need a Motherboard Upgrade.

The Celeron D isn't any better sorry.

Hmm. I have the same set up and I am using the 65 watt 64 x 2 5600 processor with no problems. The bios sees it and SiSandra sees it. Running Windows 8.

The reason I gave that info for the cpu is that the information from Compaq/HP is 4 years old. The 5.14 bios will see the cpu and multiply properly. I was goint to try a 6000. I did not do that because I wanted to stay with the 65w cpus

I have not tried it. I think it should as long as you get a better Heatsink and fan
The motherboard you are using does not put out 12 V. I am using the Thermalink R! something like that. I have it tied to 12 v and the yellow one hooked to the motherboard for sense.
I would have tried the 6000 but I did not want to spend the extra money. This mobo funs win 8 without any problems. It has a rating of 4.9 with a video card.
I have 4 of these computers and they are good workhorses.
If you have any questions ask.
