Ok So in about 5-6 months I will be getting a new mobo etc. but until then to tide my over I would like to upgrade my 4000+ to something a bit beefier-
I have been told with my mobo (ECS MCP61PM-HM)- that the best I can do is a 3.1 GHz 89-watt Brisbane 6000+ -but the HP website states that nothing above 5600+ is supported. Is this true? Can I do better than 6000? Lastly I know I can't go above 89 watt cpu's-thx!

amd 4000+ 2.1ghz
320 gb HD
LightScribe dvd+- 16x burner/drive
3 gb DDR2 RAM
Nvidia 8600GTS-overlocking at 760mhz
ECS MCP61PM-HM Motherboard

I have the ECS780G and its on supposed to support 95w cpus but I added extra cooling to the mosfets etc and I have my 9950 which is a 125w cpu and its running fine.

Do some research on your motherboard and see what cpu's they are running in that board.

AMD 940 PH2 BE @ 3.7 Ghz ArcticFreezer 64 pro
Asus M3A79-T Deluxe
Patriot 4GB pc8500 DDR2 1066@5-5-5-15
Antec Quattro 850 Watt PSU
Asus 5770 1GB DDR5 850/1200
Sound blaster Audigy. w/2.1 surround Logitech speakers
Antec 900 case w/4 120mm fans 1 200mm fan

Well in 5-6 months we may have far more options for the AM3 chipsets what with 785 chipset with HD4200 igp now announced

and el cheapo AM3 770 chipset incoming
so if i were you i would just hang in there and grab P2X3 720BE or a quad once you moveout of that AM2 mobo


My El Cheapo move to better PC Audio!
