I have got a motherboard from Gigabyte (GA-K8VT800) or abit IP35-e it says on the box supports AMD Athlon 64 Proccessor, which I also have. However the socket on the board is a 775 socket and the AMD is a AM2 socket.......

Now I understand the round hole and square peg theory, but is there something I'm missing? there a way of my AMD Athlon 64 fitting this board?

Any help would be most greatful....Kev

I fully agree with you...However I have in my hands an IP35-e with a 775 socket that says it supports an AMD Athlon 64?......
maybe I'm lucky enough to have landed a real freak of nature or packing error!!

Is there any way of adapting an AMD to fit a 775 socket???

I've had MBs RMA'd back to me from the Mfg. in a different box than the product box. It was easy enough to figure out the MB was shipped in a 'random' MB box simply for shipping purposes. I think the Mfg. even made mention of this in their shipping procedures.
