    It's the same heatsink for all processors and the same PSU of 220W.

    Hi,thank you for the information.

    Can I use either Athlon2 CPU or Phenom CPU in this model with same fan and heatsink?

    is my CPU then the highest speed and cores for this model?

    I saw in the download section of this model an option to download BIOS for 6 cores CPU!!!is that relevant to upgrade the cpu?

    thank you.

    What is the largest CPU I can put in my Acer Aspire AX3300

    Processor:
    • AMD Phenom II X4 925/910/810/805 processor
    • AMD Phenom II X3 720/710 processor
    So it looks to me like the Phenom II X4 925 is best
