    [SOLVED] AM2+ CPU compatibility with HP Pavilion

    I found an old HP Pavilion on Craigslist, model a6614f, and I was considering purchasing and upgrading it. On HP's website, it says it can only go up to a Phenom 9600 CPU. Would this PC be compatible with other AM2+ CPUs that aren't listed, such as a Phenom II X4 965, for example? Thanks.
