Just learned today that Bulldozer will be "incompatible" with our boards, what are your guys thoughts on this?

I definitely don't want to sell my board for a new one, so should I say hell with it and get a 1090T? or wait and hope AMD releases a AM3 compatible Bulldozer solution down the line? Ah.. decisions, decisions.

bulldozer will be am3+ and will not be compatable with am3 sockets, however am3 chips will be compatable with am3+ sockets. i dont really mind this at all because it will give me a reason to build a whole new system. i'll wait for some benchmarks to come out before i do anything. it may be worth waiting for am4 (rumor) and/or ddr4/5 tri/quad channel memory.

there wont be a compatible AM3+ chilp down the line. I touched on this a few pages back.

Personally I am going to wait for AM4. If you remember how quickly AM3 came out after AM2+ then you know why.

If you dont plan on getting a new MB then yeah a 1090 or 1055 would be the way to go. Just remember that these MB's and CPU's are still going to be priced high when AM4 and AM3+ come out so resale should be easy...

AM4 will come and as far as I have heard/read no one is talking about it yet. BUT it will be coming.
The Getting a buldozer chip when they come out would be a mistake IMHO because if you remember the 965 it came out 140w then not too long after came out C3 and 125w. Also the 1055 came out 125w IIRC and is now out as 95w. So let them get all the bugs out and and reduce TDP as well as shrink the die some more

Don't those heat sinks come off with 2 screws on the top?

Maybe you should thin about water!

Nice!!! Maybe I'll just get a New one to replace this one. I've abused this one!

Open box still has MSI warranty.
That's cool. I thought that they did.

I wonder why!? Am2 and + were compatible weren't they? Maybe they going to have HTLink 3.5 or 4.0 then OOOOOOOOOR DDR4!

Yes, either way, the next few years will prove to be very interesting indeed!

Hi!

I have a question! I don´t see here a lot of x6 on the msi board. Are there many problems with it or why?

I am kicking myself because I remember that deal. But when I tried looking on frys again for it, it was no longer listed on their website.

Do you think there might still be some in store?

When I got my mobo a few months back Fry's only had 3 left in the Sacramento Store and I got one of those. I don't think they are replenishing their stocks of this mobo either as they always faze out old tech w/new tech.
