no, i was making assumptions based on what they said "FX processors will not work in an AM3-based board. AMD deliberately blocked that combination out in its BIOS"
|Now, what if youâ€™re rocking an 890FX-based motherboard with a Socket AM3+ interface? AMD isnâ€™t explicitly supporting such a configuration, though Socket AM3+/890FX boards do exist. Compatibility could be a roll of the dice, but there isn't any specific reason a vendor claiming interoperability can't achieve it.|
Back on topic though, until someone with a CHIV tries it, you're really just blowing smoke.
