Phenom II opinions on mobo...??? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
I think he did think 790FX/SB750 combo... I still think CF is rubbish... dont really matter if CF is 8x/8x instead of 16x/16x... paying extra 400$ for a GPU just to get a 15% FPS increase is just nuts...

OFC i learned that AFTER i bought a 790FX mobo

Dude actually overclocked it dam' good with a 790FX-SB600 board... so no upgrading necessary yet for us SB600 owners!!!

Hear that PepsiLove?! We're set... http://valid.canardpc.com/records.php
Sweet as, I have that board (although the initial benchmarks I saw only hit 3.6-3.65ghz). Was thinking the same thing as you, but if I can hit 4-4.2ghz stable, there's no reason to upgrade to squeeze a few extra mhz's. +rep for the find, this keeps on getting better.

You know as far as i recall the dude managed 4.1ghz with 1 pcs of DDR2 ram, i doubt 4.1ghz will be possible with DDR2 runing in dual channel mode...

Seriously if i hit 4.0ghz on my mobo with 2x2gb DDR2 1066 i'll be happy as hell.... compared to todays 2.6ghz stock 4.0ghz OC seems like Mars

Sure hope so..

There's only one way to find out.

But from what I've read, you should be ok. Overclocking will be a different story though, and it's impossible to tell as of now.

Hahaha great minds think alike! =D. I was lucky (in a way), they don't sell the FXB here so the FX was my only choice =P. Man I can't wait for pII to come
