When you have the links there, couldn't you just read the specifications and make out for yourself if it'll work or not?
Says in the first section under specification
"AMD AM3+ FX™/Phenom™ II/Athlon™ II/Sempron™ 100 Series Processors
Supports AM3+ 32 nm CPU
Supports CPU up to 140 W"
Under the CPU support tab
"Phenom IIX6 1090T(HDT90ZFBK6DGR),3.2GHz,125W,rev.E0,SocketAM3,6-Core ALL from BIOS version 0503 "

And for RAM you download the Memory QVL and look for that RAM model.

I know the board works for the cpu....just seeing if anyone used that RAM for that board/mobo combo, since I did not find the RAM # in the QVL....I already look in those places you said before making the post, that's why I made the post in the first place to see if anyone used the RAM with that mobo+cpu combo.

Well, if it isn't in the QVL, it would be a little, I restate little, better to go with something that is in the QVL.

Thanks for all the replies, decided to go with Asrock 970 Extreme 4 motherboard and 8gb of G.Skill Ripjaws #F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL, working great :) .
