post #6551 of 12349
Hey guys, could you help me with a decision?

I have an opportunity to sell my board and memories + my old 5600+ for a price of 150€. Should I sell that stuff and get a AM3 board and DDR3 memories, or keep it and get just 2x2gb new memory? So is the 890FX chipset much better than my current 590 SLI?

Then IF I should get new rig, which motherboard, which memory?
Crosshair IV, or something from MSI or Gigabyte? 1333 or 1600 memory?

I personally would get 2x2 gb pc2 6400 to match your 2x1 gb sticks pc2 6400 for a total of 6gb,and get rid of the pc2 5300 stick.

You can, if you want use the 925 with the 2209 bios.

Just put the 925 in the socket then reset cmos and you should be good to go.

Use it with that bios for a while, see if you have any troubles,if not then it should be safe to update the bios to 5002 using the 925.

Good luck

It's on the support list for bios 5002,so ya,pretty much.

Reset bios to defaults,flash to 5002 before you switch cpu's,boot,reset to defaults,let it reboot to windows,shut down and replace cpu, boot, reset to defaults,boot to windows.
If all is good then return bios to set you preferences.

Good luck

You can break that down into two steps too, so it does not seem so daunting.
flash bios now and install new cpu later.

flash bios
#1: reset bios to defaults,flash to 5002,reset to defaults.set your bios preferences.continue to use the 5600 till new cpu arrives.

install new cpu
#2; reset bios to defaults,shutdown pc,replace cpu,clear cmos(with new cpu in the socket),boot to bios and reset to defaults,reboot,set your bios preferences,enjoy.

As far as having any issues,no one can say.
If you do it right you should have no troubles at all.


Good luck
