the name of the thread is the model number on the mother board i need a CPU for plain and simple. I would like to find a CPU preferably duel core that will work in this motherboard, the thing is on the specs for this motherboard don't say anything about duel cores however i am pretty sure i read that it can be done. Basically i would like to know if anyone has seen or knows what the best CPU i can pop in a (HP a1130n) MS 7093 ver .120. Any help is greatly appreciated!

More about : 7093 ver 120

Socket 939! Athlon X2 4800+, Opteron 185 Denmark or FX60!

Wait you know that those will work on this MOBO? or you just talking about 939?

It is hard to say what that board supports being a HP (bios support) but in general the 939 was free of issues that came at a later date with to high a tdp wattage!

4400+ is a dual 3500+ a single! You want the dual!
Before you buy make sure they are socket 939 since same numbers were on AM2 athlons!

Ok i found a bit of a hitch my current bios is 3.47 and i need 3.9 according to the site i found the MS 7093 vers .302. i was able to locate the bios for that MS 7093 Ver .302 that is the bios version 3.9 however i don't know if it will work and i know that messing up something like this will fry my board

If both boards have the same chipset and hardware then chances are that the newer BIOS will work! Compare the specs, it might be that the BIOS is the only difference between versions.

I looked it up and the specs are dead on for sure i found this thread i am correct in reading this that my MOBO can take a 4600+ dual core processor

Sure looks like it and does not surprise me at all!

Even their BIOS (X2 support) might work http://www.msi.com/product/mb/RS480M2.html#/?div=Detail Looks to be the exact same board!
I have a fujitsu siemens 939 board flashed with an MSI BIOS for their retail version running an opteron X2!

Secondly there are 3 versions of the X2 Manchester, Toledo, Windsor all 90nm ofc does this make a difference?

To sum it up any Dual core that is 90nm should work?

Most Likely Anything Thats 939 And No More Than 95Watt Should Work, Im 98% Sure, Even 939 Opterons.

That is mainly cause of the heatsink or what? Also i am eyeballing some Toledo 4400+ but i cant' tell from looking at the wiki what the TPD is its either 89W or 110W (Edit) found it, its 110W but i have to ask why you say 95W limit?

Ok i think i found a Brisbane 4400+ and according to what is said here it should work? the Brisbane is 90nm and 65W. Which kinda brings me to my next question is there any real differences between say Toledo or Brisbane performance wise?

Scratch the Brisbane found out its AM2

OK i flashed the Mobo had a bit of a time figuring it out because it wasn't MSI branded board but OEM by HP and kept reading in forums to add /nlb to the command line but it was /nbl for no bios lockout (i had no clue). took a little bit of time to load windows the first time so that scared me but all is well with the new MSI bios also found a Opteron 148 (2.2 GHz) dual core so for cheap only $25 so i will be posting how it goes when i get that CPU installed

What processor did you end up going with? Did you just install the latest update for the MSI MS-7093 off their web site? I'd like to upgrade My HP Pavilion a1130n BIOS to this newer version as well if possible. I am currently running 3.47 3/3/2006 on my MS-7093 rev. 120 board.

I see this is likely the MSI RS480M2 based on the MSI link above. It looks like their latest BIOS revision 3.9 (7093v39.zip build date 2006-02-13) has an older build date than the version from HP 3.47 (2006-03-03). The MSI release notes make no mention of the fixes integrated into the HP build...

MSI 3.9 release notes (http://www.msi.com/product/mb/RS480M2.html#/?div=BIOS):
- Update CPU ID.
- Support RX1300Pro VGA card.
- Support Winbond W39V040BPZ Flash ROM

HP 3.47 release notes (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericSoftwareDownl...):
- Resolves compatibility issue with Audigy 2 ZS audio card.
- Resolves issue with resuming from hibernation.
- Resolves occasional restart issue.
- Improves system stability.

Nor do I see the HP fixes in earlier MSI release notes. The version numbers don't line up either. i.e. there is no 3.47 on MSI's web site but there is a 3.4 and a 3.5. I might just stick with the HP BIOS.
