Ok I currently Own a Foxconn AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H. and I was wondering if the new AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 3.1GHz 65 nm CPU was Compatibility with it. I checked The Foxconn Web site but it only has the Compatibility list from like 1 year ago. SO it really dosent help me.

Here are the links

If its the right socket then yes it will. It has no special wattage requirements or anything. At the most youd have to update your BIOS, which obviously do that before installing the new processor.

You should have no problems running that cpu in that MB.Only the chipset will limit you for overclocking.Enjoy your new cpu.

My Foxconn AM2 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H went missing in action in December :(  So I purchased a New MB ! The Foxconn Destroyer NVIDIA® nForce 780a SLI AM2+ Motherboard. Which works great! When I went to purchase the AMD athlon 6000+ 65nm Newegg was sold out, but they did have the AMD athlon X2 6400+ 90nm in stock :D  which has better performance! It may run hotter and consume more power but its still a great CPU! the CPU idles at 29C and reaches its peak at 50c which inset that bad. ( I really have to run like 5 programs some music and a game to get it up that high. Normally it stays around 45c under load)
Sorry that I couldn't give you any info on my old board and the CPU compatibility :(
