  1. No it will not, AM3 CPUs will work in some AM2 and AM2+ boards, but AM2 and AM2+ CPUs will not work in AM3 boards, they have two extra pins which physically keep them from fitting, they also lack the DDR3 memory controller so even if you got it in it wouldnt be able to talk to the RAM.
  2. Thanks very much for the fast reply.
