    I just received a "new" board from newegg - a K8N neo 2 Platinum with the
    markings of MS-7025VER:1 under the PCI slot. It also came with the heatsink
    retention already assembled. It looked as if it was just rma'd and sent back

    The 90nm 3200+ is coming tomorrow. Will I have issues with a "rev 1" board.
    I remember reading about problems with old bioses and the 90nm cpu. Does the
    heatsink assembly normally come already assembled?

    I am of the mind to just RMA the board and hope for the best.

    Mine was the same way. I asked and everyone said theirs came the same
    As far as I know, they are all rev 1. Mine was bought around the first
    of December and came with BIOS 1.3 wich supports the Winchester (and I
    am using a 3200+ Winchester in it).
    I think you'll be fine.

    I have ordered three of the Platinums and one had the 1.2 bios the
    others had the 1.3. All had the heatsink retention assembled. All
    were Ver: 1. I have installed one FX53 and two 3000+. All of them
    are stable and run up a storm. The only gripe that I have had was the
    temperature reporting for the cpu. Two of the boards are flaky and
    the other one seems right. I guess they are ok because none of them
    have fried. I finally decided to stop worrying and just run them. No
    problems... unlike a recent Epox 9NDA3+ purchase!
