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.


Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.
