[REQUEST] Phenom 1055T on M3N-WS
Due to latest events I unfortunately need to work at home where I have a way old ASUS M3N-WS motherboard based pc (nforce 730a chipset).
I have also a spare Phenom II x6 1055T 95W from another computer that died last year (motherboard's chipset failure).

I was wondering if would be possible to add support for this cpu to my motherboard, I understand this may seems quite a stupid aim for such an ancient hardware and yes, I have not enough knowledge to do that (I would basically [censored] up everything I guess), but let's say circumstances made me wanna give it a try.
I found that based on the same chipset is the Gigabyte GA-M85M-US2H, which offers support for latest AM3 x6 cpus.

Would be something too crazy? M3N-WS support up to 95W cpus (phenom II x4 945 955 965 etc) and fortunately my 1055T is at least not a 130W model.
I tryed to just swap the cpu and I can access the BIOS (no os boot) where the processor incorrectly, showing 2 cores, this is what gave me the hope.

Added pictures of the main screen with correct amount of RAM  and the CPU info screen

This BIOS hasn't support for hexa core CPUs. I don't know any simple way to add it.
