Oh, and I just flashed the bios on my Asus M3A78-EM using the win flash utility and it was fast and easy, maybe MSI has a similar option?

Also, being a brand new chip, an updated bios is probably necessary and maybe not ready yet...
Yeah, Table. You may wanna look into this "bios protect" feature dodger is talking about.

Yeah, I'm just thinking, a bios that actually supports this cpu, along with a proper overclock, may just be the thing to make this chip go flying.

Table, if you ever get the chance, test this chip on an SB750 board.

It is faster clock for clock than the Phenom I, and is also better than C2Q's clock for clock. It lies in between i7 and C2Q.

It also beats the i7 in some cases (gaming performance), but not frequently.

Thread Starter 
I want to get some 3dmark runs out of the way if I can pull on off from 3.6-3.8 it should give me a good Idea of what this can do, after I gather a few more benchmarks I will try and winflash the board
post #115 of 335
hmmm 1M Super Pi @ 20 sec w/ 3.6 ghz, how is that better than the 65nm and 45 nms intel is offering right now?

Looks like benching superpi seems shameful, but how will real world apps do?

Once again, Super-Pi is not an indicator of the performance on these cpus. Intel has been known to do better in this benchmark.

The Phenom II's peform a lot better than you would think in real-world apps and games. It will still be slower than intel's offerings in decoding and such, but not by much.

The Phenom II falls between the C2Q's performance, and the i7's performance.

Alright! Start working on stabilizing 3.8 if you can. If not, try stabilizing 3.6.

Nice, I'm pulling down the manual for this mobo right now, MSI really needs to update their website, offically, this board doesn't support any Phenoms
