    This is a list of the CPUs supported by that board, from the ECS support website

    http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=1139&MenuID=19&LanID=0

    it supports AM3 but not the newest AM3+ CPUs
  3. If it supports am3 you can see if you can find a phenom cpu. Athough at a certian point it would get to be cheaper to just buy an am3+ board and an fx-6300
  4. AM3 is long dead. You need a new board and CPU.
