Won't work. Send one of them back and get something different.

+1 to ModernWarfare. If it was me I would get an AM3+ MB with a 990FX chipset. 970 chipset will do fine but make sure That The Motherboard works with AMD Vishera FX processors. Note: some may Motherboards require a BIOS update to work with an AMD FX 4300, 6300, 8300 series CPU. The MB you have has an LGA 1155 Socket so if you buy an Intel CPU make sure That it is the same socket.
