compatibility
I have this motherboard, GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3.
I want to know if it will take an AMD FX 6300 CPU.
Does AM3+ motherboard support it? I have been looking and getting confused by the socket designation.
This is my girlfriends pc and someone gave me the 6300 chip.
Thank you.

RE: compatibility
AM3+ socket is indeed designed for AMD FX series CPUs. Definitely the FX 6300 should fit in there! Smile

FYI: AM3+ socket is also reverse-compatible with AM3 socket CPUs (older AMD Phenom II and Athlon II CPUs)
