    the pin setup is different

    edit: if the update makes the motherboard am3 compatible then go for it
    (as long as its an official asrock update)

    http://www.pctreiber.net/asrock-bios-downloads?did=48 this is not an official bios update


    Here's the latest official stable bios update v 2.30 and it does not add support for am3
