well, can it? if i were to buy a 939 pin mobo and buy something like an 64 3000 (754 pin) would it be compatible? (newb)

Think about it for a minute - 754 pins vs 939 pins. That's like trying to put a round peg in a square hole. It ain't gonna work.

That would be like trying to squeeze a Socket 478 P4 into your current Socket 462 motherboard.

i cant think. thats why i asked. is it because the arrangements of the pins are different? :drooling: edit

you can definitely get it to fit in the socket (I think a hammer might come in handy)

now whether it will work or not :cool: I think you should be able to figure that one out yourself :D

It's actually like trying to put a Socket 462 P4 into a S478 mobo. Less pins into a socket with more holes. Since S939 has so many more pins one can assume that it could be likely that a S754 A64 will actually fit in, but AMD may have purposely blocked one hole in a position that S754 CPU's use (my guess is that they did).

But basically, no, it won't work.:)
