  1. I dont believe it does, i am pretty sure Athlon 2's are am3, you could check the supported socket on newegg
  2. Nope. In case you missed the bulletin, it's parent company pretty much closed it down earlier this year so that means no BIOS updates or anything. Even though AM2 boards can support AM3 CPUs, some of them anyway, they need the proper BIOS updates to do so.
  3. Would it run when i try put the Amd Athlon II X2??
  4. I see the back of the Amd Athlon II X2 ...

    The pin on the Amd Athlon II X2 fits on the Abit AN52S...

    It will fit in the socket, but the motherboard probably won't pick it up when you try and boot.
  6. why does it will not be pick up by the motherboard??

    I have check on the abit site...

    There is bios update but it make update the support for Amd Phenom and Amd 4X50 cpu...

    What is that amd 4X50 cpu??
  7. Here is the link to the supported CPU's.

    As you can see, it features none of the newer models, not even the old Phenom I's.

  8. but when i use the Bios update can i run the Amd Phenom right??
  9. The old Phenom, not the new Phenom II. Let's be honest: You need a new motherboard if you want to upgrade your CPU.
  10. ^ +1 Agree with Herr_Koos. The original poster needs a new motherboard whether a AM2+ one or a AM3 one.
  11. does this mobo support 45nm chipset??
