    Default Will this Gigabyte board ( GA-MA790FX-DS5 ) support AMD Phenom 550 ?

    Motherboard:
    http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Sup...l.aspx?ProductID=2694

    CPU:
    http://products.amd.com/en-gb/...0=False&f11=&f12=True

    On the support list it doesnt support the 550 but it supports the AMD 945 ?
    Anyone know if this will work?

    Thanks

    I don't see it in the list. Not on any of the 4 pages for motherboards that support the AMD PhenomII x2 550 (Socket AM3, FSB 4000, Callisto, 45nm, L2-512KBX2) ----> GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - CPU Support List

    Hello there. The Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-DS5 Mother-Board will support all Phenom II cpu's with
    bios update. I would suggest using bios F8I - even though its a Beta Bios ; i have been using it
    since its release and no major problems cause its beta. I am running the Phenom II x4 965 BE.
    Higher end Phenom II then the 550. With the F8I bios you can even use the 6-core Phenom II's.
