Hello DRAX96;

No - they won't work together.
You could try to return either the motherboard or CPU and exchange it for a matching Intel CPU-Intel MB or AMD CPU-AMD MB part.
Or you might be able to sell the CPU or the Motherboard.

Intel CPU motherboards = socket 775, socket 1156 or socket 1366
AMD CPU motherboards = socket 939 or socket AM1, AM2/AM2+ or AM3.

Short answer is no. The # of pins on Intel and AMD CPUs are different as well as assigned differently, so even if you banged the AMD CPU in with a sledgehammer :p , it would just short out.
