  1. I was just wondering if Socket 939 CPU's can be put into a AM2 MOBO, or vise versa. Anyone know? I have extra parts and i dont want to have them just sitting there....

    Nope.

    Socket 939 cpus do not fit in the AM2 motherboards or vice versa.

    Yep, it cannot be done :(
    939-pin boards can be picked up for next to nothing now so just get a micro-ATX all-in-one board for your CPU.

    Make sure you put all the information of the CPU ( Clockspeeds, Socket it uses and other stuff that is important ) you are selling so the customer wont be stupid and try and put a 939 into a Socket 775 ;)
