Compatible? The motherboard says it supports AM3 socket, but Phenom II x4/x3 only. Is this an issue?

because primarily, its only the triple core and quad core CPUs that use the AM3 socket. however, since the CPU is AM3 and the motherboard is AM3 they should work just fine. they list that because a lot of people want to dump a AM2+ CPU into it, and most dual cores are AM2+. they physically fit but dont have a ddr3 memory controller, while the CPU you have does. you should be fine.
