Hello, I am currently running on a FOXCONN A7VMX-K Motherboard with a Phenom II x2 550 BE. I wanted to know whether I could upgrade this processor to any of the X6 range at 95W TDP. After doing some slight research I could not find the X6 on the motherboard's compatibility list but it was on the chipset's compatibility list (780G with a SB700) and it the mobo has the correct socket.

Does anyone here know exactly if it will work? and if so, any official retailers in the UK which sell them?

Thanks.

If the motherboard does not list compatibility, then you cannot use that processor with that board.

I know that is usually the case but the website is outdated about this mobo and so are some other sites. They usually all date back to 2009 before the X6 was released.

Then email FOXCONN, they're the only ones who can say if there is or is not a BIOS available with support for newer processors.
