From the web-site that you cited:

 

Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
  • TDP=125W
  • AMD Phenom II X4 9xx/9xxe/8xx Quad-Core (D)
  • AMD Phenom II X3 7xx/7xxe Triple-Core (H)
  • AMD II Athlon X4 6xx/6xxe (P)
  • AMD II Athlon X3 4xx/4xxe ®)
  • AMD II Athlon X2 2xx/2xxe ®)

So, having 3 or 4 processors, instead of 2, should speed-up your processing.

 

Do you still have the original 1TB "spinning" disk-drive? Replacing with a SSD would speed-up the input/output.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. It refuses to turn on now, I get a black screen, no beeps. The screen says no signal input although the fan runs in the case. Maybe it's time for a new motherboard as well. I didn't want to trash the case as it looks in very good condition.  The case is large enough for additional drives and the intent was to add them to support video editing.
