Thats a big no lol the server motherboard is not am3, but its Socket F. Also the motherboard has like intel lga 1155 etc has the pins in the motherboard and not the cpu, where that phenom has the pins on the cpu and contacts in the motherboard.
Any upgrades to that motherboard needs to be Socket F cpu and is compatible with it as well
