Nope, just hoping =/

Otherwise I'm where I will probably stay on the AM3 socket.

I dont think so
the AM3+ is a 942 holed socket. The AM3 has 941.. One less hole for a pin so it won't fit. but the AM3 Processors will fit in the AM3 + Socket.. Because the AM3 Processor has one less pin. and fits and works in the AM3 890 or 990 South Bridge.

I've heard that, however I seem to recall reading that the am3 socket on boards that are being supported have the necessary socket(which they would need to). Speaking of which, I believe that ASRock you have was one of the first to be listed as supported via bios update, before MSI even, iirc.

The 890 fx that I have was the very first AM3+ Board.. I have been ready for Bulldozer Day for a long time... You can tell easy the sockets. if it is a black Socket then it is a AM3+ ,,,, If it is a White socket then it is a AM3 Vanilla socket.

Kinda like how you can't play PS3 games on a PS2 but opposite when it's the other way around

According to wikipedia, the AM3 socket itself has 941 pins. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_AM3

MSI also said that their boards(without listing specific revisions) would support BD with just a bios update. http://emm.msi.com/display.php?List=44&N=1029

My board's socket is white fwiw.

edit: just realized we're both in agreement on the 941 pins.

edit2: considering am3 cpu's only use 938 pins, has anyone confirmed that BD cpu's use all 942 pins?
