I think that's nifty, but the board's still kinda ehh. I mean yeah you'll get a support for the phenom II (that's if it works with no errors) but everything else is still the same.

If you have one and want a quick way to upgrade your cpu, then i suppose. But i wouldn't do it. lol x)

Hi.

Please don't forget in ur next poll set the time limit for the poll or this will be closed from the beginning.

Regarding the poll I don't see any AM3 CPU in the thread so u can't confirm that works this is something like the hack mobo for SLI support.

^ the poll code doesn't always seem to work correctly.

EVGA use to support AMD, but has decided to only produce Intel MOBOs.

I would assume the clear decision was because of their niche market, and it's always about $. I would like to hope that EVGA will produce next gen Bulldozer, but I cannot find any hint of it.

Bulldozer isn't near yet so many things can change in the way.

RE: Phenom II support on EVGA 590 SLI
Its been running 24 hours with no issues. I have to pony up the money for a new cpu and I guess it would be.
Also I set the limit to 10 posts and the date, i'm not sure why there closed all the time right from the start?

I said "like to hope" - and I am "reasonably certain" {99.99%} that EVGA will not support ANY current AMD CPUs nor go out of their way to optimize new AMD CPUs.

The link "to me" screams dummied-down pseudo recognized AMD CPU {Phenom II} - incorrect CPU ID.

Yeah but that Phenom II is the 940 that is AM2+ socket not AM3.
