gig 990xa ud3 v1 tyvm 4 reply
but whats a good upgrade ? plz
Are you looking to upgrade from the 1090t?
This is what he said
yes plz what what would be a good upgrade
IMO 8120, mine runs nice and cool and can easily do 4.0 with barely any heat gain
An FX 6300 or 8350.
Depends on your budget.
so a 8350 would be a good upgrade, tyvm guys gals
There is no need to double confirm what members suggest. YES
You will probably have to flash the boards bios if you upgrade
Yeah. It's the flagship of the FX series right now.
Personally I have the FX 6300 and it is a beast.
OC'd on air from 3.5 to 4.2 @ 1.3 volts
Also, it's quite a bit cheaper than the 8350.
But, if money is not an issue? get the 8350.
Good luck and let us know how your upgrade goes, or if you have any questions after you get it up and running
ok tyvm any good cheap uk sites?
I'd go with the FX-8320.
It is usually about $25 cheaper than the 8350, but overclocks to just about the same clock speed.
Not really. Both 8350's I've had hit 4.8 no problem, however the last three 8320's my brothers friends and LAN party friends have barely managed to scratch towards 4.6 on a good day., some not 24/7 stable.
Correct, 8350's are binned chips and generally overclock higher
That difference is going to be pretty negligible, and a $25 saving while still having a very nice OC. He said they overclock to just about the same, not to the exact same. The 8350 should OC 200mhz higher on average, thats why it comes with the price premium.
There is no guarantee either way. Some chips are just better chips. I pulled over 5Ghz on a 8350
Of course there isn't, I've seen a few reviews for 8350's where they only managed 4.7. And seen some 8320 reviews where they hit 4.7 - 4.8. The 8350's are going to be binned higher, but some will be better than others, and some 8320's might get a lucky bin as well. Either way, 4.5 to 4.6 seems to be pretty average for a 8320 OC, which for a $25 savings I would say is more than respectable.
I'd say the FX-6350 or FX-8320 would be good upgrades. I decided to save some money and got a 8320 instead of an FX-8350 and am rocking and rolling at 5.0ghz.
Just make sure you have good cooling if you really want to push a heavy overclock.
Lower the temps and raise the voltage bet you can get similar clocks on an 8320.
Nope, your bios is good to go. That board shipped with a compatible bios from the start.
