Nothing is official but if any currently avalailable mobos support Conroe, 975x is the most likely candidate by far, as it stands you are much more likely to be able to drop a Conroe into your 975x than I am with my nF4 I really hope both of ours end up supporting it though, that is gonna be one beastly CPU!

I'd like to know what the "hardware" issues are that the article mentioned, but never clarified. Although if the 975 never does support the Conroe, then I won't feel so bad for not getting the E-Premium version of my board


As of now, the only chipset that will officially run the Conroe is the 985 which won't be released until the Conroe itself comes out.

I wouldn't feel bad owning that mobo--that's a killer mobo--and I imagine subsequent BIOS updates will offer support for the Conroe.
