Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0 with bios 1503 (the last) supports partially the FX8350 : Windows 8 64 bits and the different free of charge Linux 64 bits distributions in their last versions, but not Windows 7 64 bits !!! I have proved this by replacing the FX8350 by an Athlon II X4 630. I have contacted the Asus support, and the Asus support does not seem to understand the problem.If members of the Tom's hardware community can intervene by Asus, it would be useful.
