AM2+ socket in AM3 motherboard?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I just stumbled upon this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-283-_-Product

in my town for $20 and went and picked it up. Will a AMD 940 BE Quad Core work in it? it's am2+ i think.

Its listed as being AM3 socket on the egg, so it should support it.

No it will not work i think the 940 does not have a integrated DDR3 memory controller as far as i know which you will need for that board

Confirmed, the 920 and 940 won't work on it, as they're AM2/AM2+ only chips, that's an AM3 board.

I thought so

940 will not work for the two reasons of 1. AM2+ CPU not working on AM3 board 2. 3+1 power phase not sufficient for safe high TDP processor operation

That's why the 1100T is on the support list? Biostar 3+1 is good enough for stock on any AMD CPU, assuming it's supported (the 940 isn't obviously though).
