actually, the latest bios for my board is on there, but it didn't add any new processor support. the prior update was the one to address am3 compatibility, however it predates the release of the 550, and the 550 doesn't appear on the latest compatibility chart either.
this has always been rather a crap board. had trouble breaking 3ghz with my old 5kBE brissie. even still...for such a crap board to run this chip with stock volts at 3.6ghz, well...lets just say i'm salivating for what i'll be able to do with a giggy 770 and some ddr3!!!
question...the PSU in my sig, is it going to be enough for a potentially unlocked quaddie? i'm not mister gamer, so i've no power sucking graphics card to worry over, but i do run 4 hdd, a dvd burner, and quite a few fans (though i think i'll save on fan power with my forthcoming xclio coolbox, though it'll still be 3x 180mm and one 120mm).
so before i go for that xclio, or even try to unlock to quad, should i be looking into a PSU?
