How do I tell if I have a Rev 1 or Rev 2 Giga GA-965P-DS3?

There is no reference to it anywhere, noty even on the card and I need to upgrade the bios?

Thanks

There is one very sure way to tell if you have rev 1 or 2. Look below (south) of your PCI-E x16 slot. There are 4 solid Al capacitors on both. On rev 1 boards however, there are two electric coils as well in the same line. Rev 2 boards have two non-descript black cube-shaped boxes instead of these coils. Also, some rev 2 boards say Gigabyte GE-965P-DS3-E on the label.
