In an announcement that will undoubtedly make your day, MSI has made absolutely clear that its AMD AM2+ series of motherboards will indeed support the all new Phenom II CPUs.

In order to make your board compatible, you simply need to apply a BIOS update. That's it. No new hardware. No soldering. No switching of DIP switches. Just a BIOS update. As you well know, the AM3 processors check in with higher frequencies, fast L3 cache, support for both DDR3 and DDR2 memory, new C1E energy saving functionality and an "advanced architecture also enhances its overclocking prowess."
