The mobo does NOT support AM3+ CPUs such as the FX series. You'd also need a BIOS upgrade even if it did support FX CPUs and that is unlikely from HP.


Technical ignorance is NOT a destiny it is a choice. Do your homework so that you can make technically informed decisions and not be duped by advertising hype or mis-information stated as fact when its not.
