    Check the ASRock cpu support list for your ALiveNF6G-VSTA by using the full cpu model name.

    But both of those procesors are am3 procesors. But i read on the internet am2+ sockets mobo should support am3 procesors.

    In that link you send me is not even one am3. So i dont know.

    The link says:
    "Support for Socket AM2+ / AM2 processors: AMD Phenom™ FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core / Athlon X2 Dual-Core / Athlon 64 / Sempron processor"

    It's possible that some AM2+ motherboard brands or models might support some AM3 processors, but only if the manufacturer offers an updated bios for the AM3 cpu.

    A quick web search using am2+ am3 compatibility turned up this link: AM2+ and AM3 Compatibility - CPUs - CPUs -- Tom's Hardware.
    Tom's has links to similar threads at the bottom of the thread.

    Sorry, it looks like you are out of luck.

    I don't think that the AMD Phenom X4 9650 will work, it's not in the cpu support list.
    There are only two AMD Agena AM2+ Phenom X4 processors in the support list:
    • HD9600WCJ4BGD
    • HD9500WCJ4BGD

    Both of these models have the B2 stepping and require the 2.10 bios.
    The 9650 has the B3 stepping.

    Trying to run an unsupported cpu is risky, it might not work at all or it might "kind of" work, but not reliably.
    The only processors that ASRock has tested and that are known to work are in the cpu support list.

    You can send a private message to ASRock TSD - Emily, include a link to your first post in this thread, and ask for her help.

    Wikipedia has a list of the Agena Phenom X4 processors and most of the models have the B3 stepping.
    List of AMD Phenom microprocessors - Wikipedia

    **edit**
    I noticed that Emily is in the forum right now.
    I sent her a PM and asked her to look at our posts and asked her to post additional information.

    Emily wants you to send her your email address using a PM so that she can email you a special bios and more information about which processors will work with the bios.

    Do NOT post your email address in this thread, otherwise spam bots can easily copy your email address and spam you.
