The NF63-TR is just a NF68-TR that mean quad core overclocking limited to around 1200-1300FSB by a design flaw. A Bios update won't fix that. If you plan on getting a Quad core AND overclock then NF67-A1 / NF68-A1 or NF68-T1 are your only choice.

The reason your NF63 board show NF68 now is the number is fixed in the bios file, the board is basicly the same except it's the OLD bugged revision released at a special price to clear out the stock of flawed boards. Since the quad core overclocking bug isnot a BIOS bug but an actual electrical problem it won't be fixed unless the board is replaced.

I have a feeling the A2 revision fixes some issue with either DDR3 or some new CPU architecture, but not confirmed yet.

There is no A2 revision boards. The A2 you see in CPU-Z is the revision of the 680i chip. That's different than the revision of the board. All 680i boards from the begining use the A2 chip I believe.

And BTW the 680i dosen't support DDR3 at all, I don't know where you pulled that one off.
