Trailer Park Boy,

+ Rep for taking the time to author a very detailed response, and doing so promptly. I knew the M4A89TD bios for the Fx chips was beta only (noted im y original post), and maybe i was just looking for validation, but the idea of flashing to a beta driver spooks me a little also.

Time to make a decision i guess. Newegg has the 690T at $124, plus you get a $15 gift card if you order by 3/11 seems almost too good to pass up. Would be fun to see if it unlocks and how far i could push it. But for $170 i can get the 1090T, and although it would not be as much fun to play with, i would get the 6 cores for sure, and more importantly i could monitor core temps through CPU. It really bugs me that when you unlock cores you cant see those core temps. I guess i need to decide if it bothers me $50-$60 worth.

Thanks all for the insight.
