As of yet there is NO 975x board capable of supporting Conroe, however, word has it that the new revision 304 on the Intel 975 Bad Axe board is on its way to retailers as we speak. Chances of actualy getting 1 us going to be pretty hard at the moment.

But as stated before the P5WD2 E board DOES NOT support the conroe at the moment, theres also no word that it will, but only time will tell.

Not sure how many people have seen this:

Due to the different voltage requirements on Conroe/Kentsfield, the first batch of 975X motherboards manufactured before January of 2006 need a different voltage regulation module (VRM) to support Core processors. However, engineers have confirmed to us the P965, Q965 and G965 motherboards -- slated for release within the next few months -- will support Kentsfield without any problems.
http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=1471

Looks like the January and newer motherboards will support Conroe. The P5WD2-E Premium was released on January 20th of this year. So, think should mean that the Conroe will work with the P5WD2-E Premium.

ASUS Engineers have always be making things work that Intel said just wouldn't happen. So I have full faith in ASUS.

just because it was released then doesnt mean that was when it was manufactured. Is there a way of telling when a mobo was manufactured?

The board I got(revision 1.02) was manufactured on Dec 24 2005.

But in any event, there has been NO working 975x and conroe combo's

I did some research. ASUS didn't include their 8-phase voltage regulator power design. At release, think was looked on as a negative by a lot of people, including Anandtech. And it doesn't really make sense why ASUS would put a less powerful voltage regulator on their newer motherboard when it was on the 945 and 955 motherboards. But, if you think about it, ASUS engineers could have done this to solve the Conroe compatability issue.

How did you look this information up? CPUz reports my revision as 1.XX.

That is your BIOS. You should probably update that, as the most recent one is 4-03-06.

It may just be a BIOS update necessary. I hope.

You likely have the same revision I have, and it can be found on the board right bellow the P5WD2 E markings.
