Which revision is this? by Korlus
Which revision is this? I ask because revision 3.1 is AM3+ compatible, with its black AM3+ socket. Revisions 3.0 and below are not.
i believe it is revision 3

1600MHz by Eoghain
Hi, could you please confirm if this will support 1600MHz RAM?
That should be supported, yes. Although it doesn't list 1600MHz RAM in the product description, there are 1600MHz sets listed in the following 'supported memory' document they describe:
Help Please, i Have Limited Knowledge On Computers by Majed
Will These Components Fit Together, Sorry i May Be Wrong In Many Areas, Could You Recommend Or Fix My System If It Is Wrong Or Cannot Fit?
i Could Not Find A Suitable PSU, Could You Tell Me The Right PSU To Use?
That all looks fine to me, assuming you have monitor, keyboard and mouse already.
If you're not planning to add a second graphics card at a later date, quick code 43594 is a very good price at the moment and would be able to power the system. If you were planning on adding a second 560 for an SLI configuration you'd want something along the lines of quick code 43907.
Question by Robin
Hi I would like to know if this motherboard is compatible with crossfire? I have a SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4870 1GB GDDR5, I am thinking of getting another one and running them in dual mode. Thanks
Yes it crossfire compatible.
