One ASRock listed above is a MiniITX and the other is the MicroITX. Your original Giga mobo is the MicroITX but the Mini should fit as well as it's smaller. If you can find the ASRock's then I think you'll be better served.

I can find the Asrocks. All the boards are on Amazon.
I posted the link to the CPU above

Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Is that not enough information? If so, I'll have to take it off the board and get the #?

HERE"S THE THING. This is what I've been asking. Ya'll are willing to suggest a board and you don't even know the specific CPU. SO.
AM I OBSESSING OVER CPU COMPATIBILITY?

Yes you are obsessing, enjoy yourself, we've tried to help and get confusing half-answers.

I tried to call ASRock and dbl. check. @ 909.590.8308 but they are closed till the new year. I think if you can contact an authorized ASRock dealer you should ask for the compatibility as I feel confident it should work but clearly your CPU isn't listed and I understand your concern. It would seem the mobo's can handle the FM1 pin patterns in A6 or A4 in Husky or Llano cores with a Bios version difference, but I would hate to say 100% and be wrong.

All of this is coming from ASRocks site and then support for CPU's and it clearly doesn't show this CPU but I still suspect it will work but would I bet my life on it.......not a chance, but someone will be much more in the know as they say.
