Is it worth upgrading to 8RDA3+ rev. 2.0?

I just found out my store got the rev. 2.0 in stock. Will it be worth it to fry my mobo and get a replacement 2.0 eventhough I put better cooling on the NB on this 1.1?

Epox.org says for this 2.0: Improved cooling and layout.

I see no better layout.

That sounds like you want to intentionally damage the board and make Epox take the loss. That is why prices go up.

well, considering your 225 fsb overclock on 1.65 vcore from your sig, I wouldn't think you can get something better out of an 8rda3+ rev2

Umm guys, I was just kidding.

I don't have to destroy it, I just take it to the shop and say I want a replacement.

What I don't like is the 2 weeks of waiting.

That two will drive prices for the rest of us up. If we don't play fair with Board makers, it will always come back to us.
