  1. nope

    AM3 cpu is backwards capable with AM2(+)
    AM3 mobo is NOT backwards capable with AM2(+)
  2. mindless728 is correct - the AM2+ CPU has a pin in a location that the AM3 Socket does not have a hole to keep you from accidently trying to do that also - So even if you tried the CPU would not fit into the socket !!
  3. that sucks thx for fast reply

    also, don't try to remove the 2 extra pins from the cpu to make it fit, this site did that and it didn't work (no surprise)
