MegaExo crankset with Pressfit 30 cups

Will a MegaExo crankset (specifically FSA Energy 36/46) work with Pressfit 30 cups?
I'm looking everywhere for a 36/46 PF30 crankset, FSA Gossamer or Energy, and I can't find one
Thanks!

I just went thru this and should need the M4 cups for a MegaExo crank. However do yourself a favor and find the right cranks instead. I got the megaExo cranks cause I could not find the FSA BB30 triple crank. After purchasing the crank and several sets of the M4 cups I had terrible creaking, then popping noises, and finally a combo of all the above. I used their special Locktite 609 on the races and cranks, purchased a torque wrench, and so on. I was never happy till I found a BB30 crank, as soon as I installed it all my previous problems disappeared. Really, do your self a favor and get the right cranks in the first place
