Mostly all that support Conroe right now. They are just going to get a BIOS update to support it.

</div>Not true with 90% of the boards. For example, the DS3 needs a new PCB rev, because it won't support the Kentsfield. The DS3 now might be supported by Kentsfield, they said by mid October. As for 45nm, that's a year off, and I'm sure you will have upgraded your board by then.
