Hi there. New to processor upgrades and am having to rely on the information at HP Support document - HP Support Center (and HP Support document - HP Support Center ) which suggests that chips to Deneb (quad core) are supported so long as they have a max TDP of 95W.
However there are some hexa core AMD Phenom II chips (Thuban) and harvests with two disabled cores (Zosma) that also have a TDP of 95W. Might these also be supported by the motherboard? The motherboard spec does state that "Only Socket AM3 processors [which these Thuban/Zosma processors are] are supported with this motherboard.".
I've found information on a similar-sounding motherboard (Foxconn H-Alpinia-RS780L-uATX) that does imply that the hexa-core processors are supported. Are the specifications for the Alpinia and the Aira motherboards that different?
Many thanks for any advice that your can share!
