AM3 cpu is backwards capable with AM2(+) AM3 mobo is NOT backwards capable with AM2(+)
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 !!
