Hello, I was wondering if you could put an Fm2 CPU in an Fm2+ motherboard.
Specifically, the components that I'm looking at are:

CPU : AMD Athlon X4 760K Black Edition
Motherboard: MSI A78M-E35

I've tried looking in a number of places and nothing says that these sockets are definitely compatible. It would be much appreciated if someone could shed some light on this for me!

If these aren't compatible, could somebody suggest a compatible motherboard for this CPU. It's important that the motherboard is mATX (Even though AMD isn't optimal for mATX) as the build will be mATX. Also, the build is going to be relatively cheap. If you need to know any other details then please ask.

Thanks!

Best solution
