These processors are compatible with the Inspiron 531.

Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.0Ghz 89W Windsor

As are the following.
Athlon 64 X2 4050e 2.1Ghz 45W Brisbane 
Athlon 64 X2 4450e 2.3Ghz 45W Brisbane

Is it possible to use Phenom X4 9750?

I have and am running a Sempron 1.8GHz in it.

I am not an AMD person - Most Dell boards are Intel. Any useful info is appreciated.

Can you add support to the BIOS or is it a chipset limit?

:( 

8GB RAM on a single core Sempron hahaha

Windows 10 doesn't run bad, I am surprised.

What is the fastest CPU for this motherboard? Any overclocking in BIOS? Quad core support?

What chipset is it?
