AsRock N68C-S UCC am2+ to am3+ CPU upgrade

Hello. I would like to know if you can help me (and if it's possible) to upgrade my am2+ Asrock N68C-S UCC to an am3+ because i want to install an AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz, Vishera core (not the bulldozer). I currently have a phenom II x4 955 on my mobo and 4gb DDR3 ram, a western digital 500gb sata 3 hdd (which works in sata 2 due to the mobo limitations) and a HD7770 graphics card.

Current bios
AMI Bios (version P1.50)

There is an AM3+ motherboard ( N68C-GS FX ) from AsRock that seems to be 100% identical with my N68-C S UCC motherboard.

My N68C-S UCC mobo

The N68C-GS FX mobo with AM3+

Please help me, this is my first post here. I'm sorry if i spelled something wrong, i've learnt English on my own.

    Hi. I had both motherboards in my hand and there is a difference. The N68C-GS FX has an extra chip.
  3. the extra chip maybe be for a feature that the n68c-s ucc doesnt have since its a basic motherboard i only got it cos itswas all i could afford

  5. Yes i understand, but that chip could mean the world. That missing feature can make your bios to brick. One can speculate that it might work, but there is no certainty.
    If you brick your bios you can re-write it using a microcontroller (if you have knowledge of that).
