so definitely nothing of this AM3b

) and serial number, Asus happily confirmed I'll be able to use AM3+ CPUs on it with a simple BIOS update!
Not to rain on anybodies parade but unfortunately I must point out that Bulldozer covers 3 different Core designs. So AM3+ on our board may be limited to Quad and Six Core CPUs. I'm hoping that it includes Hexa Core CPUs' but the limitation is possible. So maybe we should temper our expectations a little bit.
I know I know I'm such a doosh for raising and then dashing hopes. But if you read that link that I posted about a page back or so, you'll see that we still get BD, but maybe not the level to what we expect. If it works out where we get the full monty and not just the first 2 BDs' then we can spin round the room like ADD kids on crack.
