Can my motherboard use this CPU?

Hi there,

I have a this gateway motherboard and i am wondering if i can put this AMD processor on the motherboard.

My motherboard says that it only accepts AMD SOCKET AM2, however, i currently have a Phenom II X4 810 2.6ghz that is AMD SOCKET AM3.

  1. If nobody knows i have a question about overclocking. This site overlocked their phenom ii x4 810 cpu to 3.2 ghz. The problem with this cpu is that it is not black edition. How to i overclock something that locks its multipliers. I read about raising the HTT clock and Northbridge speed. However, it is locked on AMD overdrive.

    Thank you.
