Default Noob Question: Socket 939 motherboard

Will a 393 motherboard support any 939 socket cpu or only up to so much (ex: 3400+/3600+)

A socket 939 will only fit a socket 939 cpu. A socket 478 will only fit a socket 478 cpu, etc etc...

One more noob question, I am pretty sure you can't but can you run a socket 754 processor on a 939 motherboard (like the one above)

Nope. Like Him said a S939 board is only compatible with a S939 PGA CPU.

Off topic, but I once saw an pic somewhere on the web once of a S939 CPU socket with an extra hole drilled into it; thus making it a 'home-made' S940 lol Don't go trying something like that at home...

Right. The number 754 is how many pins it has. That cpu has 754 pins, and a socket 939 has 939 holes for 939 pins.

1.) you can't run 754 on 939; 754 is old news, it's already discontinued (or soon will be)
2.) ECS is unreliable (and don't plan on OCing with it), and even if you don't oc, ecs isn't a good brand of mobo anyways

Won't work besides the different pin, their all different pinouts

well doesn't the word 'unreliable' kind of tell you? Pretty self explinatory.

Flake out, die on you earlier, not perform as well, things like that
