All we can give you here is the list of HP approved processors.
In some cases other models may work.
But if all the possible models are indicated with a tdp 95 w, then you have less chance that it will work
To avoid any worries, I would advise you just to use only what is indicated.
Now for you to see, I can't tell you anything more
