    Default What 6 core?

    Just deciding on the last piece of a new rig the CPU, i already have everything else so has to be AM3.

    I have a lian li 350 custom with a RAD in so will be water cooling, it was able to keep a 920 @ 3.6 @ 1.15Vcore.

    Ive only use a 550BE recently and found it to be very cool, obviously the 6 Core will be hotter but will it run cooler than a 920?

    The decision i have to make is between the 1090T and the 1055T, now i know i wont be able to get max clocks (which seem to be around the 4Ghz mark with the 1090T) due to the heat of the chipset and mosfets in my small case, so would people recommend the unlocked CPU? i would be happy with 3.6 across all cores and perhaps 4Ghz across 3 with turbo.

    From what ive read the 1055T comes with a multiplier of 14 so would need a bus speed of 271 to get this the board i have got is a Biostar TA890GXE, has anyone used one of these? I can only find one review and they say they struggled to get it above 250!!

    Any help would be appreciated

    From what I have read, the AMD 6 cores seem to run as the quad cores, much cooler than Intel but the TDP is much lower. I think max temps on the new chips are 61 as were the AMD quad cores.

    ive seen the max temps noted at mid 60s, my i7 was hitting that fully loaded at 3.6

    Its hard to find relevant information about temps/power draw at certain clocks for the 6 cores at the moment...i might leave it out of the case and see how high i can push it, the only problem with that is i will be pissed off when i have to back it up.

    Yes but with good cooling, the if the new 6 cores are similiar to the 4 core Phemons which they should seeing they use the came microarchitecture, your temps with good cooling at hich voltage should be low to mid 50's.

    I have Heatkiller3.0/Thermalchill PA120 trip rad/Liang MCP655 and with my 965 at 1.6v(4.14Ghz stable), I ran low 50's on temps(full load, prime95). This is very respectable. IMO, the 6 cores should be about the same.

    Sayso, it is not the overclock you need to look at temps, it is the voltage used on the overclock.

    My set up wont be that good, i had a heatkiller on the I7 but will be using a EK supreme cos i have the bracket!!

    the problem i have is heat build up in the case causing thermal runaway, i had to do this!!

    You can easily change the plates on heatkiller 3.0 to use it on socket AM+2 or AM+3. I used mine on both AMD and Intel Platform but you have to be careful with the screws taking it apart. I cleaned my Heatkiller and swithed plates and the metal the use to make screws are pretty soft. 1 is stripped now I am screwed(LOL). My heatkiller is now permantly sealed............

    Obviously you need to find a supplier who has the AMD plates.

    hehe would be my luck it would spring a leak :P

    so with the above considerations do you think its worth paying out the extra 70?, i was thinking of just putting it towards another 4Gb of RAM, i will upgrade to Bulldozer at the end of the year most proberly anyway,

    Nah it was easy to switch the plates... very easy.... If you use apps that need more ram then go for it. I assume you have 4G????? IMO if you have no need for 8G. It will put more stress on IMC and it may inhibit a high overclock. If you want 4GHz on your overclock, 8G ram should not be a problem.

    Well if i sell my Ram today on ebay will get the 1090T!! if not the 1055T its the only way im going to decide

    And yeh i have 4Gb, i wont use 8 but then i wont relly use a 6 core processor but i just love playing with new stuff...hehe i would be here if i didn't!!

    Im going to have to prove myself on here as im new....what do you want me to aim for CPUZ@4.6? a Wprime run at 4.4? hehe

    will be happy at a 24/7 4Ghz OC depending on temps, im very interested in on setting up overclocks for different cores with the turbo feature, looking forward to having a play,

    That's up for you to decide, what ever you feel comfortable with, are you sure about the Biostar 890GXE ? I think you would be better off with a 890FX board.

    We have the new MSI 890FXA GD70 review coming up shortly, maybe next week. We also started working with Gigabyte so you can expect a review of their new GA-890FXA-UD5 sometime in June.

    I haven't overclocked that chip yet. 4.6Ghz seems aggressive but hey set it high. I go for 4Ghz 1st and then take it from there. Keep load temps under 55 and your golden.
