Hi , I have this motherboard and according to this page http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Product... only the rev 2.0 of this motherboard is compatible with such processors .I have been thinking to update my phenom x4 2.4 ghz to some phemon II processor but im not sure if my motherboard is compatible with them. Is this a hardware issue or could this be solved by updating the bios ?
I've got the same mobo, was looking at upgrading my cpu to a phenom II 955 or 965 and found this thread. This review says they are compatible, I hope they are but I can't say for sure.
Can anyone confirm if they are supported?
It doesn't look like i can post the link but it is a review for rev 1.0 and it says:
"This motherboard has Split Power Plane design, with a 4+1 phase power design to support AMD's latest 45nm AM3 Athlon II and Phenom II series multi-core processors. This motherboard will even support 140W processors like the upcoming Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition."
