Athlon 64 3500+ in a Asus AMD 770?

Here is the mobo - http://www.motherboardpro.com/Asus-M3A-Socket-AM2-Motherboard-AMD-770-Chipset-ATX-p-459.html

My question is, will a Athlon 64 3500+ that is currently in a socket 939 mobo work with this Asus board?

The Asus board states it can handle a athlon 64..

  1. If it is the same socket no problem. AM2 cpu´s work in AM2+ boards.
  2. Sorry, I think I had some confusion there, the cpu is currently in a socket 939 motherboard.
  3. Then it will not work! Socket 939 CPU´s have DDR memory controller AM2 and AM2+ DDR2 and AM3 have DDR2/3.
  4. Thanks, saved me a couple hundred bucks. :)
