Motherboard Help


Well-known Member
to me it looks like your cpu will not work as this is a s939 Athlon 64 motherboard only

I would guess that your current AMD chip is not a socket 939 one so it will not be compatible with this motherboard.


Motherboards accept different types of CPU.

An Athlon XP is a Socket A.

The ECS board is a S939.

64 bit AMD CPU's come in 2 main types the S939 and the S754.

Your Athlon XP will not work on this new motherboard.
