  1. how can you tell the difference? i am buying one today from the local shop but am not sure how to tell the difference between the revs? is there a marking on the board somewhere?
  2. The revision number is located at the top-left corner of the board. The added heat sink under the ICH8R on a rev 2.0 is also a quick and obvious way to tell the difference.

    I received a rev 2.0 from newegg.com last week but I can not say with any certainty that they are only shipping rev 2.0 boards.

    What are your plans for it? I'm trying to build a system around the rev 2, just thought I'd ask if you are building from ground up as well.

    How is it that some people have recieved some and yet I can't even find one for sale? Is there some sort of inital limited release?
  5. Principe use if for media development (e.g, encore DVD, Premiere, Flash, Photoshop, Studio, etc). I use three LCD’s and one CRT in independent modes so the second PCIe slot, ICH8R/eSATA and processor compatibility were strong selling features based on these needs. Video encoding with my X6800 is excellent and the system is very stable with the F7 bios.

    I have a rev. 1 and rev. 2 of this board but I was not expecting the rev. 2 when I ordered the second MB; both were ordered from newegg.com three weeks apart. The systems are identical down to the case and other than the rev. 2 running a little cooler than the rev 1, I have not identified measurable performance differences between the two systems (i.e., subjective, encoding times and Sandra Pro). All said, I would instinctively want the newer board if given a choice...
  6. i bought mine last week and got it from zipzoomfly
