More about : motherboard compatible amd phenom thaghost101 September 16, 2010 7:46:47 AM Im pretty sure it will work, But it wont be running at its full potential, It will be running at AM2 speeds. After looking into it abit more, AM3 processors support DDR2 so it is backwards compatible. It will work. m 0 l thaghost101 September 17, 2010 1:47:39 AM Quote:No it won't work. You need a AM2+ motherboard to use a AM3 cpu. Nor can you use a Phenom I quad core. Thanks for correcting me on that one, I would have felt horrible for giving him a wrong answer and possibly costing him more money. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
