did your board actually come with a bios update because I know AM3 supports AM3+ CPUs but AMD doesnt guarantee it, so its up to board makers to make that decision. I mean Asus and I believe Gigabyte did without a socket change. Hey what ever works for you bro, I just feel this helped AMD actually. If i was going intel Id be going skt 2011 with a IVB-E
