Can I use my 1100T cpu on an ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX motherboard?

I need to know if its compatible with my AM3 CPU as this is a AM3+ socket board. Any help would be appreciated. =)

    No AM3 and the AM3+ have different spacing on the pin outs, so the AM3 will not fit. You would need an AM3+ cpu, sorry no other choice

    You are totally wrong.

    I have a crosshair v tormula-z mainboard that is running with my 1090t cpu without any problems.
    This CPU was used on a M3A79T-Deluxe AM2+ Mainboard before.

    Thanks AMD we have a very smooth upgrade path and much oc potential.
