Default CPU help.

Hi, i was lookin to upgrade my cpu and was wondering if this one i was lookin at would work. Here is the specs of my board.

Motherboard description Motherboard manufacturer's name: Pegatron M2N68-LA
HP/Compaq name: Narra5-GL6

CPU/Processor Socket: AM2+
Supports the following processors:
AMD Phenom II Quad-Core
AMD Phenom II Triple-Core
AMD Phenom Quad-Core (Agena core) 9xxx series (AM2+)
AMD Phenom Triple-Core (Toliman core) 8xxx series (AM2+)
AMD Athlon X4
AMD Athlon X3
AMD Athlon X2 (Brisbane) (AM2+)

Now i see where it says it supports those processors but does it have to be those exact ones or as long as its a AM2+? This is the one i was lookin at.

Now another question, that says it does not include a heatsink or fan, can i just use the one thats on my computer now or do i have to by a specific one for that processor?

can you take a picture of the sempron's heatsink?

It should work, but I would be worried about heat.

Your stock heatsink will be fine. One thing though, the CPU you selected is out of stock.

For a few dollars more, you can get the retail version that comes with a heatsink: AMD Phenom X3 8750 - Retail

If you buy one and plan on reusing the same heatsink though, remember to get some good thermal paste :-)

Actually, that heatsink will not work well.

The Standard phenom heatsink is much larger, has more fins, which are thinner, a copper core, and heatpipes, and the CPU is still hot.. I would not recommend use that oem thingy on it. It will be extremely hot.

I was thinking the same thing, but I kept my mouth shut since I'm not very familiar with the Phenom II's :P
