What you mention is true, but it does not bother at all - there are countless of 1090t users around in the internet I still haven't seen any issues. Also take note... why would the motherboard company release a bios update for us to be able to use it... obviously they have to test it to know its capabilities to be insured that there won't be any issues with a 6 cores cpu on our boards with a simple bios update.. as a matter of fact to all AMD AM3 DDR3 boards.
I'm certain if that specific thing was a culprit deal(something obligated needed) for those cpu's to run perfectly for specific boards.... they would clearly not release a Bios updates accepting 6 cores cpu for all AM3 boards... that there shows it won't bother ever at all.
