M2N78-LA (Violet) cpu question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
hello guys,

My buddy has a hp and he wanted to upgrade the cpu. it came stock with a amd athlon 620 2.6 which is an am3 socket, but according to the motherboard specs it says only upgradeable to 1st generation phenoms but it has a high cpu in it... im confused lol


Motherboard: M2N78-LA (Violet)


Processor upgrade information

Socket type: AM3
TDP:
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:

*
AMD Athlon X2 (Bt)
*
AMD Athlon 64 X2 up to 6000+ (W)
*
AMD Phenom Triple-Core up to 8xxx (AM2+) (Toliman)
*
AMD Phenom Quad-Core 9xxx series (AM2+) up to 9850 (Agena)


And he was planning on getting the amd phenom 945 95 watt or amd athlon 645. whichever would work. Do u think it will work? I googled this and no one seems to have a definite answer.

The AM3 version is the Violet6-GL8E - you might have found the original Violet-GL8E.
