Default Please help-- 6 Core Processor 4.1ghz turbo.

I am thinking of buying the AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5 GHz (4.1 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD6300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor but I am not sure if it will fit into my desktop. (I am new to this modding stuff)

I have a HP Compaq Pro 6300 Microtower
Intel Core i5 Processor @ 3.40 GHZ
I have 4GB ram where 3.88 is usable?
It is a 64 bit
Windows 10 pro

I can tell by your post that you know abso nothing. Its not a mod, its an upgrade and also it wont fit in too that PC from what I can tell. Your running an i5 what is intel, the AMD FX 6300 is a completely different chip made by another company call AMD. Thats the name of the company. Advanced Micro Devices and its a completely different.

A socket being the actual Part of the Mother board you would be installing the upgrade in.

No it wont fit.

That i5 is going to be faster than the FX anyways, and no it won't go into your machine.
