Compaq Presario SR1620NX Complete CPU support

[ Edited ]

I would like to know the complete CPU support for the Compaq Presario SR1620NX. I do understand the website's specifications but still wondering if by any chances the system can handle AMD Opteron or FX CPU as long they are socket 939. After many searches online, I found out that numerous people were referencing to compatible MS-7093 CPU support. Just want to know the exact support whitout a doubt.


Motherboard Specifications:

  • Hello OverHere, While it may be possible to install certain other processors than the HP supported processors, it is not recommended to do this.

     

    The motherboard that is used in this computer, while being an MSI, does not have the standard MSI BIOS. The BIOS is written by HP and may not support other processors than the ones on the supported processor list.
