Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield 2.93GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor BX80605I7870 - $290 - This processor is compatible with the motherboard based on my findings from the HP processor upgrade information.

Is that CPU part of an HP build? Some motherboards use non-stock BIOS' which may limit the specific CPU's that are compatible.

The Intel Core i7-870 Lynnfield 2.93GHz, sometimes, it just doesn't work due to BIOS issues. This is one reason why it is not a good idea to buy off-the-shelf with a manufacturer.

It could work, I just suggest caution. Those OEM computers are a bit tricky with compatibility.

If it doesn't work then a BIOS update might do the trick.

If there's a BIOS update available, again, OEM PC's are weird at times.
