CPU upgrade for SR5010NX

I have a couple of Compaq SR5010NX desktop computers (product # RX537AA). This desktop uses the 945GCT-HM motherboard, reported to be manufactured by ECS (reported as a variation of their 945GCT-M3 motherboard).


I have two Intel Core 2 Duo processors with Dual Core technology (Conroe core); they are the E4500 and the E4600. I would like to use these CPUs to upgrade the existing Celeron D360 CPUs in my two desktop computers.


Can someone tell me if there is an official BIOS upgrade that supports the E4500 and E4600 CPUs with this motherboard?

Re: CPU upgrade for SR5010NX

HP states the max is 4300 and I don't see ANY BIOS updates available for the Livermore motherboard. (that's not to say that it will not work though... just those are the facts from HP's web site).
I am an HP employee expressing my own opinion.
Please post rather than send me a message. It's good for the community and I might not be able to get back quickly. - Thank you.
