Hi, I'm trying to upgrade my mates old computer for his son to use. He bought it off some eBay guy a while back, and turns out the motherboard is from an old HP Pro 3500. 

Motherboard: Foxconn 2ABF (SOCKET 0) - reported via Speccy
BIOS: 8.14
Current CPU: i3 2125

I've sorted him a new GPU and RAM upgrade which are working fine, but the i5 2500K is coming up as unsupported and the PC shuts down. Subsequently found out no K series chips are supported according to the HP website. Stumbled across here via a Google search and see others have managed to fine ways around this on a (hopefully) similar computer (https://www.bios-mods.com/forum/Thread-R...h-i5-2500K)

Any help would be greatly appreciated Smile
Post a screenshot of third (Mainboard) tab of CPU-Z with native CPU.
Make a photo of the screen about unsupported CPU.

Download sp70375 and unpack with WinRAR
Run in command line with administrative rights:
SAFUWIN BACKUP.ROM /o
Make screenshot of results.

P.S. Have you a hardware programmer?
Hi, thank you for replying. I just noticed the usual request for CPU-Z screens. Which are attached. Will sort the other bits out shortly. Don't think I have a hardware programmer but not too sure what you are referring to.

Thanks again
Hi, hope this is what you were after. The message about the CPU appears at BIOS level so not sure how to screen shot it - it's something like "Unsupported CPU installed - shutting down computer"
I've made BIOS mod for this motherboard.
It can be flashed by a hardware programmer or modded safuwin only:
safuwin CU3_819.ROM /p /b /n /r

Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to DeathBringer for walking me through this - and of course the modded files  Big Grin . The i5 2500K now working beautifully and my friends son is over the moon at the news. If anyone winds up here via Google like I did, trust this guy, he's 100% genuine and knows his sh*t!!

Thank you once again Smile
Is the rate user button not working at the moment? All for giving someone a +1 on the rep but nothing happens when I click the icon?
