Question about Acer Aspire™ T180 PC Desktop
I've recently been looking into upgrading the processor to maybe a AMD 64 6000. Are there any restrictions that you know of with the Motherboard or this pc that would prevent me from doing this? Also, what about the BIOS. Is the current version - Phoenix Technologies R01-A2 - OK?
Any AMD Proc for an AM2 should work fine.
The BIOS should detect the proc's voltage requirement and set them appropriately.
The bios is a proprietary one for ACER and can't be updated to one allowing you to adjust CPU voltage manually, without voiding your warranty.
If you don't mind risking your warranty (For overclocking purposes) then you can find a BIOS to flash onto your MB from FOXXCON. Which is the Company that makes the board for ACER.
If you don't know how to do a 3rd party flash, you should probably do ALOT of research on it before risking your warranty on such a task.
Hope this helps

Any amd 64 will work. bios should be ok if you stay with just the amd 64 if this is a aspire t180 then you might want to go to a 64x2 which you will have to flash the bios. hope this helps
