sorry can't give you definitive answer to your question, but in my opinion then no i don't think so.

 

both those cpu's are am3+ with a power draw of 95watts

from the little i can find out that MCP61PM-GM motherboard has a max cpu draw of 89watts and is socket am2,

so even if the motherboard had a bios update for those am3+ cpu's to work, and the cpu's were backwards compatible with am2 socket (which i don't think they are but not 100% sure, more an intel guy myself.) then the power limitations of the motherboard alone would cause instability problems in my opinion.

i can't find where it says what motherboard is in that emachines pc you linked too, but it has an am3 cpu and 4 memory slots each capable of using 2Gb memory sticks giving it a max 8GB capability.

 

my best advice if you want to upgrade would be to upgrade both the motherboard and cpu to socket am3+ choices.

Hello Aukake,

 

Would I be correct in that this is an OEM MB in a brand name computer such as Gateway.

 

The information on the board is rather vague I`m afraid, one link says that it supports Socket AM2 AMD Athlon 64 X2, Athlon 64, Athlon FX and Sempron CPUs but is not specific enough, the telling point though is the TDP, the MB will accept CPUs with a maximum TDP of 89W whereas both CPUs that you have enquired about are the AM3+ type that have a TDP of 95W, this means that they are not compatible with the MB.

 

More or less reiterating what terry has said  ;) 

 

Tip

Please do not reply to your own OP or last reply as it may lead to your request for help being overlooked, staff and members who assist on the forums will always check out a topic that has not received any replies to see if they are able to help, if you reply to your own OP it will appear to others viewing the board that you have received a reply and so are already being helped  :thumbsup:
