Motherboard 8266 compatibility

HP Recommended
HP 8266 Mainboard
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hey there, 👋

 

I'm using an HP 8266 Mainboard with an AMD PRO A6-8570E CPU.

I want to upgrade the CPU but can't find any information about fitting CPUs. The Socket is clear, but which CPUs are Plug & Play? Is there any data sheet for this mainboard?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Jay

@JayLL , welcome to the Community.

 

What is the Product Number of the computer? I need this information to review the specifications of it. Please don't furnish the Serial # or other personal information. You can find the Product Number at the bottom of the page when you open HP Support Assistant.

Thank you for the additional information, @JayLL!

 

Here are the Product Specifications for the workstation.  If you look at the section titled "Processors" there is a list of compatible processors.  Here is the Maintenance and Service Guide.  On Page 43 it shows these processors and how to replace them.
