Can my AM2+ mobo handle an AM3 CPU?


Recommended Posts

I've been looking at upgrading my CPU (AMD Phenom 8550 x3 2.2 GHz) to an AMD Phenom II 955 x4. My motherboard is an AM2+ and this CPU is an AM3, but I've read that those two are compatible. My concern, however, is whether or not my motherboard will work with it. I have an ASUS M2N78-LA (GeForce 8200 chipset I believe).

You won't find a 940 for sale at any retail outlet. They've been pulled from the shelves. EDIT: I stand corrected they are available @ newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16819103471 though I'm not sure if it will work in an HP Asus M2N78-LA.

 

Is this an HP computer? If so it only supports up to a 9700 125TDP processor.
