@bktaylor74 , welcome back to the forum.

 

The list of processors in the "Processor upgrade information" section have all been fully tested to assure they are compatible with the motherboard.  HP has their motherboards made to their specifications.  So, they are not necessarily the same as a retail board.  For this reason, any processor not on the list will most likely NOT work.
