I will have to buy this FX chip. Still compatible with the Asus m4a89gtd pro?


It's true what they say, the grass is always greener when you don't really know what it is you have until it's gone.

SkyBridge Next Upgrade?

I cannot wait, my rig is waiting.

Other sites have reported 4.6 ghz overclocks without any tweaking at all, so it doesn't seem that unreasonable.

My 990FXA-UD5's BIOS has been released! So...will these launch tomorrow with the NDA expiring, or will there be more of a delay?

With my fx-8120 I could hit 4.5ghz at 1.4v, but in order to hit 4.7ghz I needed 1.5v! I know every every chip is different but that overclock is insane, just plain sick. 5.5ghz is within reach on that chip.

Still waiting for a next gen console mad.gif

How odd, considering the 990XA-UD3 that I have is. LINK

EDIT:
The 990FXA-UD3 apparently has different PCB revisions. The 1.1 and 1.2 Revs are ready for Vishera: LINK

But I'm already impressed with 8350 on linux, too bad I already bought an Intel mobo. Will convince my girfriend to build an 8350 so I can overclock it biggrin.gif

The missing early reviews which were taken down will be back up shortly.

Alatar saved a few results from one of the reviews before it was removed. http://www.overclock.net/t/1318860/various-amd-piledriver-fx-series-cpu-reviews#post_18425176

5.5-5.7 is much higher than a "lot of people will be hitting," even with custom loops. As always: Silicon lottery, overclocking skill, parts chosen, and BIOS BIOS BIOS.

Seeing as all the BIOS' have been updated i suspect their release must be soon after the NDA lifting? Can anyone remember what it was like for BD?
