I'm going to be using it with either a Phenom II x4 965 Black Edition, an FX-4100, or the FX-6100.
1. Earliest I'll be getting it is December, will it be shipping with the latest bios? The reason I ask this is I've heard of people having problems with the FX series of cpus until they managed to update the bios.
2. Obviously this isn't going to be a stellar overclocking board. However I would like to do some small-ish overclocking, maybe bring the cpu up by 600mhz or so. Will the board be able to handle this? I've noticed it only takes a 4 pin cpu power connector and the mosfets aren't heatsinked. Will this impact it that much?
3. It has two graphics card slots and apparently supports crossfire, however the second slot is only x4? How much would this impact the performance if I were to crossfire, say HD 6870s? And is there any kind of mod I could do to even it out with both slots in x8?
4. If I were to crossfire graphics cards, would this mean I couldn't use one of the pci slots to add a sound card? I've read about cheap motherboards having this problem.
Sorry if a few of these questions are a little stupid.
