And if you don't read that, well there is the hard way knowing if its compatible and that is plugging it in realizing it wont work So that FM2 board is not compatible for the FX-6100, you need AM3+ Edit: Ack, I'll just put up a prinscreen of the support page, it'll be easier for you. As you can see, the FX-6100 is not listed, that is because it is not of the same socket type. As mentioned above, AM3+ boards is what you want and they NEED an updated bios version to support it. | Report abuse Reply to socialfox Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>FX-6100 with MSI FM2-A55M-E33> Related ressources: ForumMSI FM2-A55M-E33 power?
