im familiar with that issue. unfortunately it still happens after rma. it is what it is. could be poor manufacturing, could be too many v's. im not a motherboard expert nor do i claim to be. i think we can agree it is a legit concern considering other companies are going a different direction with the whole vrm layout. i just know what i would and wouldn't install a x6 cpu on. no wars please. im done talking about this.

Every AM3 board in the market can use any 6 cores AMD processor with no problems. Ofcourse that is if the manufacturer of your board released an updated Bios to let you use them - unless the Manufacturer company states a specific version which is not compatible for the board.

Its a Fact, don't be scared of the 6 cores in your mobo DrBrown you can use it with no issues at all... you don't even have to waste any money on a newer motherboard to use them (this isn't Intel in which you need a new Mobo for newer ones, AMD cares for their budget people) - This board 790 series is fully capable insured to run it fine. Honestly DrBrown this isn't a war.. blah thing.... I'm just telling you can also use it too if you wanted to upgrade to a 6 cores cpu.

I'll do this... I'll save enough money to buy 2 1090t & I'll gift you the 2nd one so that you can play with it. - trust me 1090t is well worth it, they run in 4ghz much cooler than our 965.

I just bought an Intel x25-m SSD. Is there anything I should change in the BIOS. I noticed there are some settings to select IDE or AHCI.

Hello,

Does anyone can confirm that the cold boot issue has to do with high ambient temp ?

This is not my case.

My temperatures are all OK, even then, sometimes when I turn on the PC, the motherboard stucks in FF.

In this case, the reset button usually force the PC to boot properly.

I already tried various definitive solutions but none works.

Everything else works perfectly stable.
