Is the GA-MA770-UD3 rev 1.0 compatible with phenom II processors?

Hi , I have this motherboard and according to this page http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2982 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 ?

  1. Please , nobody has the slightest idea ?
  2. If you update the BIOS, you can use the Phemon II x4 up to the 940. I just ordered one for my system.
  3. Thank you . I thought nobody was going to answer.
  4. 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.
    http://www.*****/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/19763-gigabyte-ga-ma770-ud3-am2-am3-motherboard-review-3.html

    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."
  5. I found the CPU & Memory compatibility list for 1.0 here: www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2982#. According to this, even the X6 line is supported.
  6. the board will take any AM3 processor as long as the bios is updated to F9G which is the latest.

    however as it a AM2+ board, it will loose speed on the hypertransport IIRC.

    I have the rev 2.0 of this board and i will be doing the same upgrade as you too. Its the reason why i bought it actually.
