CPU upgrading advice - HP Pro 3015 MT (Pegatron M2N78-LA Violet3)

Hi all,


I am planning to upgrade the processor I have in my HP Pro 3015 MT.


The motherboard is the Pegatron M2N78-LA (Violet3) (so AM3 running DDR3 memory) and I currently have an Athlon x2 235.


The motherboard specifications state that it is cabable of supporting 95w TDP AMD Phenom II X4 9xx/9xxe/8xx Quad-Core (Deneb)


I am interested in upgrading to a Phenom B99 (OEM Phenom X4 3.3 Ghz Deneb core C3 stepping 95w TDP). Does the motherboard support this CPU? If not, what about the Phenom B97 and Phenom B93?


My alternative choice of CPU is the Phenom X4 945 95w C3 stepping. I was wondering if this would work as I beleive the C3 stepping CPUs came out after the last bios update.

Thanks in advance.
