After looking at those boards, seeing their pricetags, and not seeing any mention of Opteron, my guess would be "definitely not". However, this reply can serve as a bump since I do not own either board.

But if I may say so, I would say that since it isn't listed, then it isn't supported. Just like with the Biostar board. It doesn't support Sempron because it's not listed. Or I could get really mean and say "it doesn't list Intel Core2 Duos, so therefore it isn't supported."

Although, I suppose it would be nice for them to list the unsupported CPU's, however, then people would be asking "well, this one here isn't in either of the 2 lists, so then is it supported or not?"

Opterons where NEVER actually advertised as a supported product by most motherboard companies. You can only really tell by consulting a CPU support list for the motherboard in question.

However generally if it supports the AMD Athlon X2 CPU's then you are looking good. However check a CPU support list first. I will try and dig one up

A33G : http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWeb/Pro...=CPU%20Support

Does not state it supports AM2 opterons. I thought you were on about 939..sorry

NF250-A2 : http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/...t.php?S_ID=159

Those links are from the Motherboard manufacturer sites...im not sure how you missed the CPU support listings lol
