Regarding the CPU, I read that most of the AM2 socket MB's can take FX chips...you're saying they're NOT compatible? Good thing I asked or else I would've wasted a few hundred bucks. dezonio2 November 21, 2006 12:41:58 AM 939 has 939 pins, AM2 has 940 they are different and 939 processors have different memory controllers you must use a AM2 proc for it to even fit Related resources Will an AM2 Athlon X2 fit in a Socket 939? - Forum Socket A Sempron vs. Socket AM2 + Phenom - Forum Any performance differences between socket 939 and AM2 ? - Forum Is AM2 platform worth the jump from Socket 939? - Forum ASRock 939Dual-SATA2 + AMD X2 3800+ AM2 socket CPU question - Forum Can't find your answer ?

An FX-55 is a socket 939 not an AM2 socket. There is different number of pins in a different cnfiguration. You won't be able to use this rocessor in an AM2 mobo, you need an FX-62 to work in a socket AM2 mobo. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
