Default Possble to run a 1090 on a c32 motherboard?

I read somewhere that it is possible to run a AM3 cpu like a 1090 or a 1100 cpu on a c32 motherboard is this actually true and if so what types of overclocks an folding ppd would happen

Are they not completely different pins?

1090 has pins on CPU AM3

C32 has pins on the motherboard (CPU's look like Intel CPU's)

NO you can not. C32 is LGA where as AM3 is PGA.
