Will an Athlon 64 X2 processor be supported by my HP ZV6130? The 3800 is fast and runs cool. Just wondering if the moboard and PS can handle it...I think it draws about 89 watts.

I would think a bios fix could take care of that, but HP says no plans for that right now. Shucks. Would've been a great upgrade, not to mention fairly cheap, with X2 3800's going for around 160 us online. On my desktop I have it OC'd to 2.4 ghz, and it benchmarks the same as the X2 4800+, in spite of only having the 2 512kb caches...best OC'ing bargain since the Celeron 300A days...runs cool and stable at that freq, too.
