Could a fix-6300 and a ryzen 5 5600x work on the same mono?

what would happen if I were to put a ryzen 5 5600x in a zen 3+ socket? Would it work correctly?

AMD FX series processors work in socket AM3+  

 

AMD Ryzen processors work in socket AM4 

 

You shouldn't be able to insert a cpu meant for socket AM3+ into socket AM4 because the sockets are keyed and of different size, some of the holes are sealed, so some pins on the back of the FX series CPU can't go into the socket. 

 

Even if you somehow manage to insert the CPU in the socket, it wouldn't work for lots of reasons, and you may damage both the processor and the motherboard. 

The pins in the socket have different purpose. 

Also, the FX processor can only work with DDR3 memory, so a lot of pins in the AM3+ socket are for connection to DDR3 slots. 

Ryzen processors only work with DDR4 memory, and there's more pins required for DDR4 memory compared to DDR3, and socket AM4 has more pins allocated for working with memory. 

Socket AM4 also has pins for SATA and USB controllers inside the Ryzen processors, while socket AM3+ for FX processors doesn't have something like that, because the FX processors did not have USB and SATA built into the chip.

Am3+ has 942 pins. AM4 has 1331. R5 3600x is still AM4.

I'm not actually trying to be as grumpy as it seems.
