is AM3+ physically different from AM3? - Page 3

post #21 of 39
That might be a feature AMD is trying to get away from with AM3+ and is why why there only doing the mid to high boards.

AM3+ just has 3 of the blocked off pinholes (<-for lack of a better word) opened versus the AM3 socket

I can tell you for a fact my AM3+ board has a way better power management which equals higher stable overclocks.Get it if you can,use the old if you can't.

Just get a AM3+ better power to CPU and OC'ing, and it will be better for you in the longrun.

Do I have to remove this myself,or is this something the update will remove?


It kinda sucks if it removes the core unlocker. What if the 4&6 core can be unlocked?
You are lucky... It seems that Gigabyte won't add support for my 890FX Rev 2.0

I'm glad I got an AM3+ recently! The CPU and videocard were the only things I planned on ever having to upgrade in the future (except adding RAM), glad I have that covered with a Bulldozer upgrade!

I guess,but what?! No updates for their 890FX? With the FX board you think there would be a update regardless of the revision. There should be a update soon,otherwise you could probably contact Gigabyte about it.
