In easy words, they don't want.

So, what difference will make beetwen a proper am3+ vs bios update am3+??
obviously apart for any extras that might have been added on the newer versions. Asrock is not giving any updates at all as they feel that voltages etc.. would be the problem. So, does anyone knows what will be the drawbacks on a bios update am3+ or would be exactly the same on a gigabyte or asus etc...??
Thank You,Alex

The AM3 mobos than support AM3+ CPUs won't have all the BD features.

honestly.. i think they made a business decision. They figure that most ppl that has this mobo would upgrade regardless anyway hence y they released the 9xx series (which i hear r pretty bad). I just don't think they were expecting BD to be delayed.

I figure they weighed the issue of ppl that would blindly upgrade vs pissing off current users and ppl upgrading weighed more. That's my guess anyway.

Hello,
Google "AMD Socket FM2".
You will see that the FM2 is the "real" BD socket. (and possably backwards comp with the FM1). Imho the am3+ is not only a waste of money but also a dead end. The AM(x)+- socket has had a good run. What? 2+ years? Or 3? That's a long time for a PC product. Time to move on. The AM3+ is just a gap filler marketing tool to generate money/sales during the delay to market of the Buldozer and then the FM2 socket.

Buy a first gen cpu? For me the answer is "no way, not a chance". I will wait till the BD hits the market, scoop up a 1090T or 1100T when the price drops, maximize my existing box and plan on late 2012 for a 2nd generation cpu/chipset upgrade.

Cheers,
James

i think that the best way is to wait until BD release. And then we will certanly know if the rev 2.1 will support it. Maybe some people will make non-official bios for its support... i hope

890FXA-UD5 guru's i have a question for you guys...

after i disable cool n quite in the bios and get into winders and open ET6 if i move the FSB from 200 to 201...... cool n quite kicks in and drops the multiplier from x20 down to x16... if i leave disabled in the bios and get into winders and use AOD.... same effect.
the only option that doesnt change the multi like cool n quite still being enabled is to use K10Stat...

any ideas?

Don't use ET6 or AOD, disable cool'n'quite and C1E support and use k10stat, even, you can use it with cool'n'quite enable
