Conroe compatibility issues with current 975x mobo's

from what it looks the current mainboard's with the 975x cipset won't be able to support conroe meaning the P5WD2-E and gigabyte's G1 are not going to support it and that not because of the chipset but because of the VRM module. i hope some thing can be done about it

That sucks. I was looking at getting a 975 board and later getting a Conroe.
Very nice!
