RMA my AM3+ MOBO and go 1155? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Here's my thoughts.....

Obviously there's no excuse for the power draw. We can only hope that the L1 cache bug is what's causing the insane amount of power draw with overclocks.

I'm waiting to see what REAL OVERCLOCKERS can do with this thing, with a proper fresh BIOS, and the MS Hotfix for the L1 cache bug. It's fully possible that the reviews were all done a little too early, before the BIOS's and the hotfix were out properly.

If you've been waiting this incredibly long for Bulldozer, another week or two to see what happens once real people, with multi GPU setups....couldn't possibly hurt you at all.

As of right now, with the official benchmarks, yes the FX lineup seems pretty bad for a gaming CPU. As of right now, yes the i5 2500k is still the better choice.

Keep in mind, I hate the waiting game. But if you've already got an AM3+ board, I'd wait and see what happens for another week or two....and see what OCN can make FX do.

THIS And yes the waiting game sucks, ive been waiting for freaking months upon months to get d*** slapped. LOL

Honestly, I would. BD might get slightly better (primarily at multi-threaded apps i.e. not gaming) with software if you wait awhile but the 2500k has the same or better performance now and is cheaper.

Yep, I agree. We'll see what real users do with the new BIOS. ASUS has been scrambling today, so something is definitely up. I have faith in AMD still, not a fanboy, but I refuse to believe they would even bother releasing if the performance is as bad as benches claim right now.
