Asus Crosshair III Formula works with AM2?

Hi to everybody, :hello:

i bought a Asus Crosshair III Formula that has the following description for CPU support:

AMD Socket AM3 ;Phenom™II /Athlon™II /Sempron™ 100 Series Processors
AMD 140W CPU Support
AMD Cool 'n' Quiet™ Technology
Supports 45nm CPU

My question is to know if i can put on this mobo any AM2+ and if can what is the difference between AM"+ and AM3.

Thanks in advance

JT

  1. Go here for your motherboard's compatible CPU list:

    BTW, yes, it will support AM2+ CPUs.
  2. you can fit your current cpu in any compatible mobo but you have to consider that only patches will know exactly how to handle your processor .. but you have a previous processor so thats not a problemx are you having performance problems ? or why eactly change mobo and not cpu ?
