that one WON'T work. It has to be AM3. AM3 will work in an AM2 socket not the other way around

If you have proper cooling, do it.

The stress on a overclocked system is the same stress applied by prime95 to a stock system.

The only difference is the cooling.

You can leave a stock system running prime forever if you have proper cooling.

Sometime you'll reach the mtbf obviously
Yes, but many people who do 24h runs test it with overclocked settings, so it's still putting a lot of strain on the system. I'm not saying you can't do it, but it's rather unrealistic in terms of any kind of usage. If you want to do it, go for it.

Hi

I would like some advice regarding my MSI 790FX-GD70 Mobo. I have it along with the following specs below. My questions are I'm currently using BIOS 1.A I know that there are newer versions out there is it recommended to use the latest BIOS? Would my system benefit from the upgrade?

Also currently the north bridge chip is at 66c and that's idle does this sound okay what is the max operating temp for this?

CPU AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition @ 3.80GHz C3, Memory G-Skill 4GB (2x2GB) DDR3 1333MHz/PC3-12800 Ripjaw Memory Kit CL7(7-8-7-24) 1.65V Memory, Hard Drives Seagate 250Gb SATA 11, Samsung 400GB SATA, Graphics Card MSI ATI 5850 OC 1GB, Sound Card Creative Sound Blaster XI Gamer, Optical Drive Sony AD-7240S 24x DVD±RW DL & RAM SATA, OS Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, PSU Corsair 620W HX Series Modular, Corsair H50 Cooler.


I look forward to hearing from someone,

Thanks in advance.

you dont really need to update bios unless your having a problem with something (raid, thuban, etc). you could run your ram at the rated 1600mhz for a little bump in performance(yours is at 1333 but 12800=1600mhz), probably wouldn't be noticeable though. for the NB temps,1. remove the mobo heatsink assembly (nb, tube, sb),2. remove the pink junk from the heatsink and nb and sb,3. apply good paste(as5,shin-etsu, ocz freeze, etc.),4. reinstall heatsink assembly. you can also mount a 40,60,80, or even a 120mm fan on the nb to help lower temps. just doing the thermal paste change should drop your temps down to mid 40c at idle. you can also add small plastic washers to the heatsink assembly screws before you insert them into the board. this will increase pressure on chips. be carefull doing any of this!

edit: im not the guy to give advice on bios. im still using v1.7 cause i dont have any reason to update. it works good. it may not have pink junk, clean whatever is on the heatsink and chips and apply your own paste.

hey guys, I narrowed down my cpu to the 555be and Patriot gamer series 4gb ddr3 memory. Im on a tight budget right now but I might get some extra cash in a few months and will go w/ the 1090t if their is a good price drop. I think the 555be is good enough for gaming, I keep reading it likes to be oc, don't really care if I can unlock the extra cores. I just use my rig for gaming, ms office, and internet. I suspect the 890fx shouldn't have any issues w/ this cpu and its bios. Thanks again, might stop by Fry's today and pick up the stuff since I have store credit w/ them.

It's a decent performer and OCer regardless of having 2,3, or 4 cores.

If you're really on a tight budget, but you still want some high performance parts, I would look at the used stuff being sold in this forum.
