Hey All,

I have a motherboard that I want to upgrade the processor in.

MCP6P M2+ Ver. 6.x
http://www.biostar-usa.com/app/en-us/mb/introduction.php?S_ID=370

Its got a list of supported cpu

but I wanted to upgrade higher, possibly to the AMD Phenom II X6 1055T

http://shop.amd.com/us/All/Detail/Processor/HDT55TWFK6DGR#Details

It runs at 95 W but is an AM3 type processor and this is only an AM2/AM2+ board.

Someone named ozlay posted at the bottom of this page
http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Biostar/MCP6P_M2+_6.x.html

that the board supports the processor, but since there's a post above it from him that seems to have poor english, I have trouble believing it is a statement rather than a question.

Does anyone have insight as to if I can put an AM3 processor in this board?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks again, I ended up going with your ram in the end to bring my bill down a little since I anticipate buying a better video card in the very near future.
