With everything at stock I had average fps of 57
With everything OC'd I had average fps of 54

uh what?

I just flashed BIOS to 901 Friday night, I'm considering flashing back to previous to see what happens. Thoughts, ideas/pointers anyone?



If you read up a bit ^^^^ there info say that 901 bios hurt perfromance

i would like to retract my statement. i ran atto again after reading a couple people were having performance issues and my read/write speeds have gone down almost 120mb/s. can a bios update cause that? i have the current amd raid/sata drivers installed,

Your gpu will throttle itself as well as your processor if the temps get to hot, especially the VRM caps.

I'm thinking about buying a AMD Phenom X6 1100T. Will this mobo support it ? and do I have to do anything to get it up and running ?

yes this MB will support the 1100T and there should be no problems just dropping it in and booting it up.

i figured as much. i switched back to the 0705 bios. it seems to be the best for me since i dont have a bulldozer cpu. i just wish amd would work more on their raid support. rolleyes.gif

firestorm1, did bios 0705 seem more stable to you than 0901?
I flashed from 0705 to 0901 and it just doesnt seem right!?!?!
I was thinking of going back to 0705.
