AMD 970/990X/990FX Socket AM3+ Motherboards
Socket AM3+ supports both AM3 and AM3+ CPUs. These motherboards use AMD's 900 chipset series, its most recent, powerful and feature-rich, and are designed for FX-series processors. More affordable boards have fewer expansion slots and less features, while higher-end products introduce USB 3.0, increased multi-GPU support and advanced overclocking features. Make sure you update your BIOS, as newer FX-series processors may not work until you do.
