That would not be the case.  The 939 motherboards use different chipsets and different RAM.  The e 939 boards are for the FX51 and FX53 processor only.

You would think that the most obvious difference, the number of pins (939 vs 754), would tell you that this will not work, but here's an article with the details: http://www.gamepc.com/labs/view_content.asp?id=socket939&page=2&cookie%5Ftest=1

This may have sounded like a strange question, but I do seem to remember a couple of years ago there was some adaptor used in P4 motherboards to allow you to use a different CPU.  I did actually see these, but I can't remember the exact details.  It may have just been P3 to P4, or something strange like that, it just eludes me at this time what the adaptor was for.

thanks to all

eccs19 i think the adapter your talking about my be the one to adapt a socket type P2 cpu to fit a slot 1 mobo. thats the only cpu adapter i no of.

buckeyes33 from what was writon on the link callandor posted there is also a line of non-FX 64 cpus made for socket 939.

this is fustrating y on earth would they come out with a thred socket type for the 64s its just silly ness.

any way thanks to all of u for your time.

Actually I know what adaptor you are refering to, and I have used them a number of times, but that is not what I am refering to.  I'm almost 90% sure it was P4 related.  Perhaps to adapt some older versions of P4's to new P4 MB's, I honestly can't remember, but again almost sure it was P4.  :-(
