Hello everyone. Just bought an AMD 64-bit fx-53 (2.4ghz). Just wanted
to know if anyone can tell me if it runs on ALL socket 940 boards i.e.
those that are listed as supporting Opteron processors.
If so, can you recommend one?

Thanks in advance

On this Asus web page, if I search for FX-53 socket 940
(search by CPU), only two motherboards are listed:

Athlon 64 FX-53 (Socket940)  
The following table shows the support for CPU / Motherboard  
Motherboard    Since PCB     Since BIOS    Note  
SK8N           ALL           1006          System will not boot with
                                           this processor before updaing
                                           to version 1003.
SK8V           ALL           1002

Be careful when buying RAM for your new processor - the
S940 platform uses registered RAM, and not the regular
unbuffered stuff.

also try MSI and Tyan.
They both make high quality 940pin boards.
I have one of each.
