    I have read that AM2 processors are compatible on AM3 motherboards, but not vice-versa. I do not think 939 will be compatible with AM3.

    err.. wasn't it that am3 processors are compatible with am2 boards?

    here:

    .. "It's been claimed in the past that Socket AM2 motherboards will, with a BIOS update, support AM3 processors, even though AM3 mobos will not be able to host AM2 CPUs." ..
