RMA my AM3+ MOBO and go 1155?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

Alright,

I just finished watching OCED TV's bulldozer review.


I was wondering if someone could explain all this to me. I waited all this time for bulldozer and even upgraded my board for it. Are the results really subject to change since AM3+ BIOSes are still *somewhat* new? Even then, if that's the case, what's with the temperature it's running at?

To be honest, I was looking forward to 2600K performance from AMD come Q1 2012. Now that I see that the i5 2500K and the 8150 are playing in the same ballpark, I'm having really dark thoughts. The 2500K is cheaper, takes a truckload less power and runs at flawless temps.

Should I be scrambling to return my motherboard? Honestly, what do you guys think?

Not yet. I say wait until we get some benchmarks from actual users before you make your decision.

honestly i just think AMD failed again against the 2500k and 2600k as i was expecting it to beat it but yeah if you can go for 1155 man take Z68 chipset also so you can be prepared for ivy bridge or sb-e EDIT look this: http://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/c...0_cpu_review/9

But even then, those temps are just absurd. Is it possible that they really pushed the safe operable core temperature on these new chips?? Because I was planning on a bulldozer FOR OVERCLOCKING. Why release a chip with an unlocked multiplier IF IT RUNS AT 70C+ UNDER STOCK CLOCKS!?

I would love to right now, I am so freaking pissed. I honestly don't have the money for that, but I might just get the 1100T and call my system done.

nah, results will just be more fluctuating. If you game alot, then switch to sandy bridge because BD apparently fails at that.

Im in the same boat on making a determination. Only difference is I actually use my system for video editing and processing not gaming.

Either way it looks like i7 is the way to go. 2500k or 2600k. Either or appear to be a better choice especially with SB-e coming out later and you can upgrade to that fairly simple as long as you purchse the correct MB right now. Then when it comes around just swap out the cpu.

From what i have seen AMD is always going to be behing intel in cpu power. either buy intel and know you have great performance, or go amd and continue to wonder what it would be like on the other side.

Me I will be jumping boat. I loved AMD for the best bank for my $$, but this is just silly at this point. Intel always out performs AMD.
