That cpu doesn't work on this motherboard GA-MA770-DS3 (rev. 1.0)
and your not telling me anything I don't know.
It only supports up to Phenom X4 and they are too hot for the room his computer is in. So this was it. Hes doesn't game I was just commenting on how fast this old tech cpu is. http://www.gigabyte-usa.com/Support/...ProductID=2722
Somethings wrong with their web site it won't list the supported cpus right now on revision one, must be down. However, from a 4000+ to a 6000+ is a big jump. I will drop my 5870 in it later on and give you some fram rates in games.
