I saw a posting on the HP website that someone actually managed to get the AMD Phenom II X4 840 working on the Narra3-GL8E motherboard, and I am seriously considering getting this if it is legit. What are your opinions on this?
That will be a bit tricky. The computer is broken and I was getting parts to fix it, which included a motherboard and CPU. So I got the same motherboard, but a better CPU to give it a little boost. Would it be possible if you could find out if a BIOS Update would be needed in order to use an AMD Phenom II X4 850 on it? Also, what would happen if I installed the CPU chip without the update?
