CPU support on p6823w

HP Recommended
Pavilion p6832w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

This Pavilion model says the max TDP for a CPU is 95w yet it supports Phenom II x6 1090T which has a TDP of 125w. Can I use the 1090T or should I look for another?

The 1090T was released in April, 2010.  Your computer was released in May, 2011.  I believe that HP's specifications would most likely have covered up to the 1065T which was the last of the Phenom processors to require 95W.  My belief is based on my knowledge that HP was not keeping up with the latest, greatest components like they do now.  I have been helping on these Forums since 2002.  So, I have watched their evolution very closely.

 

Here is an article that has all of the information on the processors for you: https://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/TYPE-Phenom%20II%20X6.html
