A little hot but well worth it for speed,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 6000+ 3.0 GHz Processor (Personal Computers)I upgraded my AMD 939 socket 4400+ to this AM2 socket 6000+ CPU and I'm very satisfied with the results. You can get a better deal by overclocking a Intel chip but if you're just looking for fast, reliable, value CPU this AMD chip's the solution. The only reason I'm rating it four stars is the fact this chip runs a little hot. Using the cool n quiet function, my CPU was running at 45C at 1300 RPM on the fan. After I turned off this function on my CPU fan and set it to maximum I was able to achieve 35C at 2400 RPM. So at the cost of performance, my computer's sound went up. But I'm still very happy with the results. Highly recommend.

Is the 939 socket compatible with the AM-2 I wanted to upgrade my 3800+ processor with the 6000+ in other words will the 6000+ fit in the 939 socket?

No it is not compatible. Socket 939 and Socket AM-2 have different pins. Plus you would risk damage to your CPU. If you want this AM-2 Socket Processor, you will have to get a new motherboard that supports AM2 as well.
