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 !!

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)
