According to the specs I found on Asus' website, this processor will support the motherboard as it is AM3 socket. I have this processor myself but I'm using it on a different motherboard.

You should be good to go with that board according to the manufacturer specs.

I would say no according to the link Ishkrish provided. I copied the list from the manufacturers' cpu support list for the phenons and the 1090T is NOT listed that I see. Which is why I'm posting it here in case I missed it! The following corresponding #'s are the bios version required to run that cpu.

Yeah that's true, my mistake on that one.... one thing I do find curious though is that there's a bios update available for this board for version:

0602 BIOS
(Support new CPUs. Please refer to our website)

However in the supported drivers, it does not state what support was introduced with the motherboard's recent bios update to 0602, it's only listed up to Bios 0404. What is supported in version 0602????

(see for list of support, note the BIOS column only goes up to listings for bios 0404:

I certainly won't disagree that the CPU is not listed there, but it may be worth contacting the board manufacturer about as there isn't much info on the bios release 0602 I could find.
