Can I upgrade an Hp p7 1050tc Product number: LW148AV win 7 64 bit with intel i3 2100 to an i7 2600s processor both are 65 watt. Upgrade info lists up to an i5. Pegatron Carmel motherboard specs on HP website say i7 2600s is supported has LGA1155 socket with h67 chipset mb bios 5.1 will the installed HP firmware /motherboard bios support an i7

My error i should have posted h61 chioset I saw the later bios but info did not indicate supported processors
I was wondering if HP had a custom bios restricted to certain processor support or was HP using a Pegatron supplied bios .

Please post rather than send me a Message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly. - Thank you.

Thanks to all that replied .
Another question is : I upgraded the origional power supply to a 550w unit the origional failed after a power outage. So I was curious if the carmel MB would support a 95 watt cpu with the p/s upgrade or is that still limited to 65 watts by the motherboard ? Some of i5-i7 cpu's at 95 watts are stock clocked a little higher and easier to find than an i7 2600s
best regards .
