Will athlon 64 x2 5800 work in a socket 939?

Am thinking of replacing my Athlon 64 x2 5800+ in an AM2+ socketed MB with a quad core. My question is- will the dual core work in another PC that has a socket 939?

  1. Simple answer is no, it's a different socket which isn't pin compatible, and uses a different memory standard.

    Figured that would be the case, but thought it was worth asking. Thanks for your reply!
