I got a P6860 FX recently. I want to change the cpu to x7900. But I don't know whether it can be oc to 3Ghz in BIOS. I notice that the BIOS of 6860 is the same as P-171xl and p-171xl is able to OC in BIOS. Did anyone use the x7900/x7800 on p6860/p6831 ? Could you give me any advice? THANKS

hi flashwater... You dont need an bios update to overclock the cpu. The settings are hidden but as soon as you pop in the cpu it will apear. My x7800 gave me the options to overclock to either 2.8ghz or 3ghz, so I would think it will be the same with all other x-series cpu's. Hope this answers your question

I have a 6831 and I was wondering is the t9300 still the best CPU these days or is there something better?
Whats the best way to get 4gig or RAM? Can I just add 1 gig to the 3 I already have or should I get 2 new sticks?

The best cpu is a X9000 but is way too expensive. A T9300 is the best bang for not paying too much.

To get 4GB you just have to buy a 2GB stick and replace it with the 1GB already installed.
