So the 1055T/1090T's allow for better RAM OC'ing? Do they have a better memory controller or something? I never knew of this.

I've tried OC'ing my RAM but they seem to be brick walled at stock frequencies, it would be nice to have them running @ 1800MHz+ for a change.

I've been considering getting a 1055T 125W from newegg and lapping it, but what are my odds of hitting 4.0GHz 24/7 on the GD70? I haven't seen it much, TIA.

Ok - that it is possible to get a higher frequency with the x6, I have often heard. But if it is really better or brings a lot I don´t think so.

So there should be no problems with the x6? Have I to note something?

Bulldozer is the new architecture for AMD's 8 core chips

Nice, so... This MB is not compatible with Bulldozer right?

Is this MB compatible with Amd Phenom II X6 ?
It should be X6 compatible because I saw that listed in the Official CPU support link from this thread's first page.

you are right - not compatible with bulldozer, just like the other am3 boards.

you can use a x6 on this board but maybe you have to make a bios update.

check your bios if it is compatible with the x6!

Just a quick opinion needed, to match the blue on this board do you think I should use Evening Blue or Royal Blue rit dye?

Get the 95w version instead!

The dye will worsen your temps as well as gum up your loop. If you really want color use colored tubing.
