Wondering about motherboard compatibility

Last response: in Motherboards

Hey guys,

I recently wanted to upgrade my cpu so that I could do some more intense gaming on it. Anyhow, after checking some sites, I downloaded cpu-z to check what kind of motherboard I have and it said I have a: FM2 F2A82-M CM1745 90-MIBIW5. It also listed: A55/A60M/A88 FCH as the chipset, and A55/A60M for southbridge.

I really have no idea what these mean. I checked another site and it looks like my motherboard might just suck and only be compatible with AMD's trinity APUs. Anyhow, if anyone else can better explain to me the compatibility of my motherboard, I would highly appreciate it!

Thank you so much for your time.

Your motherboard is FM2 socket. As far as I know, the AMD Trinity's are the only CPUs (although yes, you are correct, they are really APUs) that will fit it.
