Hi, I have a DC5750 with an AM2 socket. I currently have a AMD athlon X2 6000+ 3.0GHz CPU. I heard that better CPUs are compatible with my mobo but I'm not sure. I'm not looking for CPUs that are officially supported. I just want one that will fit and work. I also heard that if I could find a bios upgrade that can support AM3, I could use those CPUs. Any suggestions?
