Hello, Im currently using a N-Alvorix-RS880-uATX mobo, with an AMD Athlon x2 240e CPU. Im looking to upgrade into, preferably, a Phenom x6 10xxT CPU. Iv been reading through the mobo stats and its TDP is rated for 95W, but the board also states it will support the Phenom x6 10xxT Thuban family of CPU's. Iv yet to see a <125w Thuban, and am wondering if anyone else has any information on the 10xxT Phenoms, or the board itself.

The model is a HP Pavilion p6623w. As to the rephrasing, Im just trying to figure out why the specs says the mobo will support a Thuban core, when the TDP is maxxed at 95w, and Thubans are all 125
