    This one is new retail (full warranty and heatpipe cooler) and this price is lower than most places when/if they do show up in stock....

    No such thing as burned in on silicon. You may have increased the voltage to the core due to your mothrrboards chokes dropping their resistance a bit.

    Shhhhh!!

    I can guarantee the overclock range, if your motherboard is up to it like mine was :)

    No one wants my CPU anyways :ohwell:

    I still think I'd save the $10 and go with a 960T and have the chance for an unlock.

    That's really a tough call.
    I'm partial to the 960T as well... may need to pick another one up before their supply drops off too.

    Just sold mine for $75.

    It's crazy to see the median going rate for the chip go up. When I got my chip they were frequently going for like $70-80 on OCN. Good clockers went for maybe $10 more at absolute most. Mine was a pretty good clocker and I got it for $75 having bought some other stuff with it.

    First I was like :rockout:! Then I say it was in-store only and was like :cry:.

    No big deal though, newegg just sent me a promo code for 10% off all Phenom 900 series processors for being a loyal customer, so I just picked another one up:rockout:. Now just to wait to build up the funds for a board and some RAM and my Minecraft server will have a nice upgrade!

    Got any FX coupons??? :eek:

    Also, the PII 965 has sold out... they are listed the 965 again on Tigerdirect but you have to read the fine print to find out that it's the 140W model :shadedshu

    MicroCenter's deals are good if you can go pick them up, but for the millions of us who don't live close enough to one, Newegg is still usually the best option. MicroCenter sells CPU's at a loss so people will spend money on their usually marked up Motherboards, Cases, and other components.

    I dunno about that...You get up to $60 off with the purchase of mobo with an AMD Fx cpu and $50 off any compatible board with an 2600k and the board prices seem to be about $10 more than Newegg but they will price match Newegg and TigerDirect

    EMCNGND22 = 10% off FX-6100

    But of course they are just blowing the 6100 out because the 6200 came out and at 500MHz faster it just makes the 6100 look like shit. Of course to me it is kind of pointless to pay more for the 6200 when the 6100 has an unlocked multiplier.:ohwell:

    And before anyone says it, the 6200 doesn't do the extra 500MHz at the same voltage, the VID is higher on the 6200, and its TDP is 125w compared to 95w for the 6100.:mad:

    I am interested in the 6200 but ASUS, in their infinite wisdom, hasn't posted a BIOS supporting it for my board (990X), the 970, or the Sabertooth 990FX but managed to do so for every other one of their AM3+ boards :banghead: .... sent them a nastygram today to see what they can do about it. :shadedshu

    My guess on the 6200's is that they are/were 8150's while the 6100's are/were 8120's.... 3.8ghz on the 6200 is still a pretty good stock clock despite the 125w TDP

    I don't think it works like that anymore thanks to Bulldozers modular system. They aren't disabling cores anymore, if a module is damaged it is just cut out completely, and if they want to make a 6-core they only include 3 modules, if they want a quad they only include 2 modules. With the module system there is no point in including modules that aren't need. So a 6-core processor was a 6-core from the start.

    And as I said, the 6200 is pretty useless, the 6100 easily does 4.2GHz+ with decent air cooling and only a minor vcore increase. The one I saw did 4.4GHz on 1.33v, which is basically the same clock the 8150 got to at the same voltage in the same setup.

    You're probably right on the modular thing...

    I'll probably end up getting a 6100 and saving the extra $$$ but I am so ticked @ ASUS for not supporting all of their boards equally. I got a response from tech support... they managed to read the support list and send back a "sorry" w/o providing any other response to the rest of my request.... grrr!!!

    indeed, i got my 965 for 10 bucks more last year, it was advertised a bit higher on line, went in and noticed that the price was cheaper in store than online.

    Yeah, here is the thing with ASUS though, they tend to suck at updating their CPU support list.:laugh:

    For example, with my M5A99X, support for the original batch of FX processors was added in the 0813 BIOS(technically 0810 but that was a beta BIOS). If I go to the BIOS page they have an even newer BIOS 0901 and the only things it lists is "Improved Stability and Support new CPUs", but not a single CPU on the support page says 0901 is required, so what new CPUs were added? It was the FX-6200, they just didn't add it to their list.:ohwell:

    I'd actually call their tech support and ask if the FX-6200 is supported, especially if you have BIOS listed for your board that just says "Support new CPUs" but doesn't seem to be listed for any new CPUs in the CPU support list.

    Edit: I just noticed you are using the same board I am. So there you go, the FX-6200 is supported, ASUS just never added it to the list.

    Did you get confirmation from ASUS on this or are you actually running a 6200 on the M5A99X- I saw the same thing on the 0901 BIOS which is why I e-mailed tech support on it.....

    Thanks for that bit of info :toast:

    I called their tech support and they said it was the FX-6200 that was added in 0901. They actually said the FX-6200 should work with 0813 as well, it just won't be properly detected and will show up as "Unknown Processor", but will still work.
