AMD A75 should be refer to chipset ... not the CPU.... if you have a CPU in AMD A75 chipset MB ... it will work on A55 motherboard Both are FM1 not FM2

I saw an unbocking vid on the CPU and on a label It stated "A75"
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
^Thats the CPU, its a FM2. It is recommended with an a75 chipset

The mobo is an MSI FM2 A55

^mobo

I'm just a little confused, they are both compatible because they have FM2 sockets right?

Only problem is I've already ordered them, but what will I be missing out on by not getting the A75? Thanks for your help by the way.
