No, PII won't even work on your board
what is a good AM2+ mATX board that can handle 140W CPUS that is cheap
I don't see one for sale at newegg. There are a couple AM3 785G boards that do support 140W.
I like this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813138181
i would LOVE to find a older M3A78 series board. those support AM2+/AM3 up to 140W
You are right! Newegg has one: http://www.newegg.com/product/product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131324
Every AM3 processor will compatible with 790 FX (AM2+ Socket) include upcoming Phenom II X6, as long as you always update your motherboard Bios with latest version.
This will make it much easier for the user who will upgrade your system .. just replacing the processor or motherboard later .. and as you said updating the bios.
So this 6-core Phenom II will have a IMC based on DDR2 & DDR3 correct?
I don't know exactly, but if Phenom II X6 compatible with 790FX board (with using DDR2) it will be have IMC based on DDR2 and DDR3
i bet there will be a need for dual power plane, that ruined the whole fun for me, with my old biostar, which didnt had it.
I think its going to be fully compatible with AM2+ motherboards
Yes, you are already informed this to everybody
I love his avatar
hehe..And I love the AMD ..
So what do you think BTA? Would my mobo fit that description? Do you think Ill be supporting a 6 core? Just a guesstimation.
Does its CPU support list (on the product website) show support for Phenom II X4 965 (C2, 140W)? If so, there's a good chance it will.
Well its a 140w mobo but I'm not sure about its compatibility. Lemme look.
Edit: Looks like Im in luck
Phenom IIX4 965 (HDZ965FBK4DGI),3.4GHz,140W,rev.C2,SocketAM3,Quad-Core
Phenom IIX4 965 (HDZ965FBK4DGM),3.4GHz,125W,rev.C3,SocketAM3,Quad-Core
6 core here I come!!!!
Don't sweat it guys this new Phenom II x6 and the x4 re-freshes are going to gracefully and easily plug in any AM2+ & AM3 mobo of yesteryear Why because I said so
And they both go good together. I will send AMD my wife picture so they can use her for the new AMD logo
you will buy one for you Thuban?
@ super XP
Where are you coming to the conclusion that the 850sb is going to be a very large improvement..... have you seen the benchmarks for sata 600? sata 600 offers little improvement at all and usb 3.0 isnt something i would fully utilise and see the benefits as I don't have any external hardrives. Performance wise its not really what i would call a very large improvement over 750sb at all, rather a few added extras.
On a different note my motherboard does support 140w cpu's the Gigabyte GA-MA790FXT-UD5P so i will grab one when they are out.
According to AT's reviews of the chipset, it lacks USB3 and depends o an external controller for its implementation.
soo in the end it will be cool for my 780?
I have been thinking something similar. I mean no AMD comes even close to the top 5 intel chips out there.
I smell a upgrade for me too. Now Asus, I bought a board and you made some shit BIOS's for it, make a good one this time.
