there is no way im changing boards again for a few years if not longer.
Quite a few reviews are using the CHV and the 1605 BIOS to benchmark Vishera's but it's too early to tell whether there will be long term stability issues. I have a rev 1 board and I hope not, but I will mail Asus support asking when we will get a BIOS update regardless.
This is referring to Sabertooth boards only but as the CHV and Sabertooth BIOS' were released on the same day I would say ASUS have updated the board but are just trying to push rev 2 for more $$$
I just realised this is the 1703 BIOS. The only new CPU's for AM3+ is Vishera. I am pretty happy now.
Hilbert Hagedoorn, Guru3D, proving that Vishera runs on rev 1
I would say that, as the 1605 BIOS supports Vishera, the 1703 is probably made especially for these new CPU's.
I am shamelessly cross posting to and from the following thread (and specifically this post):
