And this is any files/manuals that you might need to check:
Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Desktop / Aspire / Aspire M3201

Acer Support: AspireM3201*Acer Aspire M3201 Desktop Series

Today i tried an AMD Phenom 960T but I got a mismatch error this maybe due to the fact that the CPU can support 6 Cores and my motherboard cant..
