Hi, this is my first build and I just have a specific question really. I have the MSI 870-C45 Motherboard, which has an AM3 socket, and was looking to purchase an AM3+ CPU, an AMD Bulldozer FX-6 Six Core 6100 Black Edition 3.40GHz to be precise with you guys. i was wondering, will my MSI 870-C45 AM3 socket accept this AM3 CPU? Please Help! Cheers,
Charlie :??:

No, this is not my board, this is the 'FX' Version, whereas I only have the standard 870-C45 Model. Looks like i'll be going with the 'old Phenom II then.

Thanks anyway Man.
