I bought the Sabertooth 990FX a few months ago, I'm using it with a Phenom II X4 850.
Does BIOS 1102 have the ability to disable individual Bulldozer cores, not only computing units (modules)?
This information is critical to my upgrade, I'm going to buy a Phenom II X6 1100T or wait for a 12 'cores' (six modules) CPU depending on this.

I wish it could change multipliers on weak modules on the CPU but it does not,I have a weak module 3..

So multiplier for modules is locked. Ok, but is it possible to disable, say, cores 2, 4, 6 and 8 so that I have only one core enabled in each module?

Yes this is posible in the BIOS of the sabertooth,but if you disable one module you will miss 2 cores..

Imagine I want to disable one single core. Suppose it is core "4" in module "2" (that has cores 3 and 4). Is it possible to disable core 4 without disabling core 3?

I don't understand why you want to do that if you feel you have a a defective core if the cpu is less then 3 years old AMD is awsome on RMA it took less then a week to have my 1090T RMA
post #2247 of 10135
I have a sort of problem, I have a 960T over-clocked to 4.01 (250 fsb x 16 mult) @1.40v which puts the CPU/Nb at 2500 (1.175) volts. I have previously had it as a 6 core at 3.8 @1.375v (19x200) but heat was becoming an issue to went back to a quad core for temps. Getting to the issue, having this setting with over-clocking through FSB it will not go into sleep mode anymore. Before it would shut down and just leave a blinking light indicating sleep mode but now light still blinks but all fans stay on and it will not come out of sleep mode so a manual reboot is required. If anyone has any insight as to a quick fix or should i just over-clock via multiplier ?? is there any difference?

I want to avoid the FPU sharing.

if your trying to avoid the issues bulldozer had with sharing loads on cores download and install the patch from MS the patch effectively treats the 8 core processor as a 4 core with hyperthreading

I have the Sabertooth 990fx and de 8120 cpu, but my ram is a 1600 4gb ram module of kingston, and i'm thinking on changing it, the problem is that the 1866 4gb kinston module:
http://www.appinformatica.com/memorias-ram-kingston.-ddriii-pc1866-4gb-hyperx-cl9-khx1866c9dg.php
doesn't appear in the supported rams, anyone who had tried something like this or knows if it would work?
The idea is to upgrade to 4x4gb at 1866mhz but if i find another build that works better it's fine too.
(P.D: have CF8650 gigabyte OC review)
