What exactly do they mean by "ALL?" I see my K9A2 CF AM2+ board on the list but I don't see my 770-C35 AM3 board there.

Not trying to bag on the chip, but isn't mentioning 'The all-new Phenom II X6 processor features 45nm processing technology, a true six-core design which can execute 6 threads simultaneously' kind of pointless. I don't get the point of saying 'true six-core design'. In the old days they were just bashing Intel for being hopeless and making dual-die parts, but now the i7 980X is true six-core as well.
