    Hello Dolen,
    The answer is no to your questions, The AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition is a AM3 socket processor. The Asus Crosshair V forumula-Z is a AM3+ socket. If u want to buy this board u should check out the AMD FX series. These exist from 4 to 8 core processors from €90 to €200.
    And u can use the 1866 MHz memory on this board no problem but check out the processor controller. Probably this processor will have max of 1333MHz. So if u want to use 1866 MHz, i advice u to get a newer FX processor.

    heuuuuuuuuuuu, the answer is yes the 955 BE not only fit on the Croshair V AM3+ but it work well too. As for the RAM, I would suggest to get 1600 mhz, but if you already own 1833, they will probably work

    , Grinfjammer if you don't know AMD socket I suggest you don't reply ; the OP already onw a 955, as I can see he plan to purchase a Croshair, so for now he can use is old CPU and purchase a FX later.
