Technically yes, check supported cpu list just to make sure.
Couple of year back i've tried AM3 athlon X2 240 on AM2+ board Asus M2a-mx, even without bios update it worked but in bios it mention as "unknown cpu" but it booted windows. Bios update should fix cpu identification issue. Since in my case i replace 65w tdp processor with 65w cpu i didn't face any issue, you should check tdp of board and processor to make sure.Edited by alg33k - 8/16/11 at 9:45pm
