How can a potential buyer know if an Asus motherboard such as a Z87-Pro, has the C2 revision? Is there any way to know from reading the serial number or any of the other information on an Asus box if a particular board has the C2 revision?
(I understand there might be a way of determining the revision level after the motherboard is setup by using a software utility but that doesn't help during the purchasing process. Seems like there must be a way to know from the product packaging, the serial number, or something on the outside of the box.)
if the motherboard has more then one rev. the easy way to find out is emal asus pre sale or eng dept and ask when per the date code a rev of the motherboard started and or ended. motherboard serial number with asus the last four is the bios rev so part of the number going to have other info per asus. now looking on there web page looks like there one rev of the motherboard. intel does have diffrent rev of there cpu. and again intel would know there cpu rev info from there date of manufacture and the serial number on there boxes. places like newegg or larger stores should be able to read the box or get the product you need (c2) rev. if you call there pre sales support.
