Hi!

Yeah - I will admit to being a bit of a AMD AM2 noob. It has been a long time since I used an AMD motherboard.

I guess what ECS should do (and all other brands), is make it very clear what you have to do to get 1066MHz support. The box doesn't specify, the BIOS doesn't grey out the option, and it wasn't until after the review was completed that the ECS product page was updated to add more than the original "Whether 1066 MHz memory speed is supported depends on the CPU being used". The update on their site makes it more clear that it is AM2+ only, but they should go further to list model numbers, in my opinion. I may be a noob, but somebody with even less info on the topic may see one of these in a store or online, buy it since the updated info isn't on older boxes or store web pages, and be S.O.L. because they don't have the right equipment and can't return the board...
