    Nice, I don't have a mobo to put it in yet. Waiting for the Crosshair IV's. Have you tried to OC your's yet?

    Might have to go back tomorrow and pick that mobo up. If they give me much grief, I will just return and rebuy the 555BE. LOL :rockout::rockout::rockout:

    note that it will probably not support the phenom II... you'd have to go check though

    If it supports AM2+ processors it'll support PII.

    TDP could be an issue though.

    Oh and also, this board definitively does not unlock cores... If you want a good AM2+ board that can unlock cores for cheap, it would either be the TA785GE or the M4A785-M, which will run you 40-42$ after the 30$ instant rebate

    Yeah I thought about that. Not sure if I want to spend the extra money. I guess it would be good to have a backup board though. Hmmmmm, decisions, decisions.
