Default am2 socket Vs am2+ socket

I am wondering what are the downfall affects of putting a Quad Core Amd in a AMD2 Socket vs not putting in its correct Am2+ socket?

You'd lose some overclocking Options but a Phenom doesn't overclock that well anyways but not all AM2 boards support Phenom natively
