Actually they require you to hit your CPU socket with a hammer while installing the CPU to get it to work in an AM3 board.

Yup, but not all features are avaliable with AM3.

Yes, however use of a hammer will not allow Cool n' Quiet or Turbos functionality.

Just to add that for now, these features are all (or almost) power management related.

As long as that's the case I'll be happy with my Crosshair IV for awhile. If it can overclock as good and manage memory speeds as good as AM3+ than I don't care about the other features that belong in a notebook, IMO.
