The specs say it supports: CPU Type Phenom FX / Phenom / Athlon 64 FX / Athlon 64 X2

No mention of Phenom II, so it does not support it? Probably a dumb question, I guess.

It's a socket AM2/AM2+ and Phenom IIs are AM3, so no, a Phenom II will not work in this board.

Look for a board that supports AM3 processors if you want to use a Phenom II.

Mikhalia: only 5% or less of my posts are utter crap.
Tyapex: 393 posts of utter crap...
Mikhalia: Sounds about right.

OK, but how about this CPU

It says to be a phenom II with AM2+ socket. Would that cpu work on the motherboard above?

I would try to stick to socket AM3 for future compatibility.
