Product Name: hp envy h8-1534

 
 
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)
 

My motherboard is the current model:

M3970AM-HP (Angelica).

 

In the processor upgrade information section on the HP website, it lists processors that are supported.

 

The supported socket for my motherboard is AM3-b.

 

All of the processor upgrades, when I look them up on ebay, amazon, and newegg, are listed as AM3+.

 

When I look for the processor FX-8150 (Zambezi), it redirects me to the FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core.

 

I would like to purchase and use the Vishera 8-Core.

 

My question: Is it supported by my motherboard?

 

The HP support website seems to suggest that it is but I have friends and other sources who say it may not be.

 

Please clarify this issue for me.

 

Thank you.

The Vishera CPU is not listed in the list of compatible CPUs for your motherboard.

Scroll down to Processor upgrade information and click on it.
