    My M2N board is not on the list of boards with support for AM2+ cpus
    like the phenom quad. And there is also no BIOS update to support AM2+.

    Do you think that it will work without a dedicated BIOS? Currently I
    have the newest M2N BIOS v0807. What will happen if I install e.g. a
    phenom CPU anyway?

    I know that I could get one of these board which supports AM2+ but I am
    just curious if anyone has tried this (and - of course - I hesitate to
    go through all of the efforts changing this rock solid mainboard)

    Note: I am talking about a pure M2N board without any "extensions" in
    its name a la "SLI Deluxe" or something like that. It is just a pure M2N.
