Without the complete model number, it is not possible to tell if that CPU is supported or not.

Please post the complete model number of the PC so I can see what CPU's are supported by the motherboard.

The statement "even tho it is compatible" is probably not true.  If you made the assumption that because the CPU's use the same socket, that is only one parameter that has to met.
