It's time for another Newegg Tutorial, and we're keeping this one very specific: we'll be upgrading the AMD CPU from our recent Price-Performance PC build.
The existing CPU is an AMD Athlon II X4 630, and we'll be swapping in the new 6-core AMD Phenom II X6 1055T. Since both CPUs fit the AM3 Socket, and our motherboard is based on the new 890GX chipset, no BIOS update is required.
Upgrade CPU - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Existing CPU - AMD Athlon II X4 630
Motherboard - MSI 890GXM-G65
