question bout amd chip

not sure if this is the best place to put it but feel free to move topic but just wondering if for example i choose to get a new motherboard do i need to buy a new amd chip as well or i can just take it out and input it into another motherboard...?so i know when im ready to get a new one or replace mines if it ever breaks down i know i can still keep the cpu with the heatsink and just input it onto another board..

The CPU socket type needs to match the MB socket type.

Check your current CPU & Mb with System info for Windows

Hi
As long as the new m/b supports your cpu (am3) it should not be a problem.The new am3+ boards will be backwards compatable with am3 cpu's.But you can always
check the m/b makers site for to be sure.

Darksideekei,
Welcome to SF. Just wondering what you're looking for in a new mobo as your listed ASUS is a very nice board?

It's not liquid glue. It's thermal paste. It's purpose is to ensure that you get full contact from your CPU to your heatsink. So, if either of them is not completely 100% flat, the paste will fill this teeny, tiny discrepancy and ensure that they make 100% full contact.

darksidekei,
I would wait for the processor to hit and let the market respond with it's second generation mobo as your current combo is well up to the task of gaming and computing. Otherwise consider a second systems worth of components so you can mix and match the two systems and have two banging systems or sell off the lesser when done. Unless you have money burning a hole in your pocket and don't mind paying launch prices to just see the technologies improve and prices drop within 10-15 minutes....lol, then go for it !
