    Default Rev2 of motherboard, should I reinstall Win7?

    Hey all,

    Just exchanged my Gigabyte X58-UD5 Rev1 motherboard for a Rev2. Do I need to do a complete reinstall of Windows 7?

    Looks like changes are largely new trace paths and other circuitry related updates. All the chipsare the same.

    Not needed at all. Even if they changed the integrated stuff, the chipset is still the same.
