Will AMD's Bulldozer CPUs be compatibe with AM3 boards?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello, this is my first post on this forum and so I wanted to ask you a very simple question, well maybe even a harder one..
Will AMD's Bulldozer CPUs be compatible with AM3 motherboards?
Or will they only work on AM3+ platforms?

Thanks!

am3+ only,bulldozer has one extra pin.
manufacturers are releasing 890 chipsets with am3+ sockets with reduced functions,but your probably best waiting for the proper chipset

AM3+ only. There are some AM3+ boards with the 890FX chipset but you'd be better waiting for an 990fx board(I recommend Biostar)

Also, you don't need all that information in your signature... it should just be displayed in your rig information.
