hello all :-)

the CPU Phenom II X4 980
AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition - HDZ980FBK4DGM / HDZ980FBGMBOX
isn't on the ALiveXFire-eSATA2 mainboard's CPU compatibility list:
ASRock > ALiveXFire-eSATA2

last BIOS version (P4.00) was released in april 2011 and the x4 980 was released in may 2011.

other than the higher clock speed, the x4 980 seems in all points similar to the most powerful CPU on the official list, the x4 965.

so my question is - did anyone try sticking a Phenom II x4 980 on a ALiveXFire-eSATA2 or ALiveXFire-eSATA2 R3.0 board ?
what happened?
works or not?

thanks!
