:welcome: jbc22

The MB is the AM3 socket platform but the CPU is the FM2 type so no match.

For the best and most stable performance you should where possible purchase a CPU and Ram that have been tested and approved by the motherboard manufacturer, this is referred to as the QVL ( qualified vendors list ) understand though that there are too many products released for them all to be tested so other hardware will be compatible but not proven to be.


For compatible CPUs and Ram for the MB check the CPU and Memory support list @ http://www.asrock.co...treme4/?cat=CPU

A MB suitable for the CPU http://www.outletpc.... AMD Socket FM2

You also have an aftermarket CPU cooler on your list, are you aware that using it will invalidate the 3 year AMD warranty.
