On the site given to me above it says my board supports - Support AMD Socket AM2+/AM2 CPU

This is the Phenom II black edition socket type. CPU Socket Type Socket AM2+ my board says it supports AM2+ CPUs so I am kinda confused.

Phenom II and Athlon II are socket AM3 which can work in AM2+ boards. Your motherboard is an AM2 motherboard than can use AM2+ CPUs.

Go to the link hunter315 posted and read the CPU support list again - it does not list Phenom II or Athlon II so your board will not work with AM3 CPUs.

If you are still confused e-mail Asus directly and ask them to confirm.
