CPU AM3 - Motherboard Compatible? Tags: Motherboards Compatibility Processors Last response: November 20, 2010 7:42 AM in Motherboards Share konzine November 20, 2010 6:03:46 AM Hello all T-Hardwarians! I have a quick, and somewhat odd question I am wanting to have cleared up. Recently, I purchased an AMD Phenom II X4 964 3.4 ghz Processor. Well payday is here and Im gonna grab me a Mobo. The way NewEgg has their listing confuses me. The chip is an AM3, bu the search on NewEgg asks if I want an AM3 for Phenom II x4.. Athlon, etc etc. All under the AM3 Tag. So My question, is will my Processor fit ANY AM3 Motherboard? Thanks!

Just Google the motherboard and look up the CPU support list before you buy it, and see what date the bios was revised for it. m 0 l beanoslim a b V Motherboard November 20, 2010 7:30:51 AM Nice CPU.
