    wanted the phenome x6 bad,(for music and video editing and other things):nerd: so I order a GA-MA785GM-US2H sense my board still has no bios update, on the plus side I can also upgrade to 16gb of memory if i want,and still keep using my ddr 2 memory and it looks like I can even charge my phone in the usb without turning on the computer.

    After this I am done.. I swear, no more upgrading and spending money

    does anybody know which revision does newegg have of the GA-MA785GM-US2H

    I know there is different versions

    I know that when I get the board I have to put my current cpu in and update bios before putting the newer cpu in. but it would help it if newegg would of list the revision number.

    ideally you want to reformat your system drive and clean reinstall the OS

    the energy management is very efficient on those x6 models, they disable cores and lower frequency and voltages when idle, so its a very very nice cpu indeed! :)
