Not exactly. It depends which BIOS the board ships with. Mine shipped with the earliest BIOS (0407), and I had to get another socket 775 CPU in to update it before my X3320 would work.

If I remember corectly, you need to update to BIOS v. 0907 for 45nm support. As long as you do that prior to changing out your CPU, you should be golden.

Have fun!

Do you think ones bought recently (in the last week or two) would have shipped with BIOS rev 907?

No, the Maximus Formula will post with and E8400 regardless of bios to the screen that allows bios flashing. So you don't need another chip to flash the bios.
