Pro versus Non-Pro CPU

HP Recommended

I am looking to upgrade from my current AMD Pro A6-8570 processor. The spec sheets on the HP website: http://h20195.www2.hp.com/v2/getpdf.aspx/c05238044.pdf  lists all of the up-gradable CPU's as Pro versions. The only versions of these CPUs available at NewEgg, Amazon, etc. are non-Pro versions. First, what are the differences between the Pro versions of these CPUs and the non-Pro versions? Are the differences more than just the Pro version being locked down such that it cannot be overclocked? Secondly, are these non-Pro versions compatible with my HP 8265 motherboard? Do I lose some features or UEFI configuration options with the non-Pro version? The specs between the Pro and non-Pro versions look identical except for the overclocking capability and PCI Epress Version spec (PCI 3.0 vs PCI 3.0 x8):
