Since the chipsets on this CHIVE aren't prime for the BD, I'd expect your right. But, unfortunately the CPU's shortcomings in design will not be overcome by external means I'm afraid. I would suppose I'll be getting another MB before too long, but it's in my nature to make things work, whether or not they like it. So, I'll keep plugging along on this CHIVE for awhile yet.

Still working on ways to lower CPU temps, but bulldozer's dual module design and the added memory latency is something I don't see a way of overcoming. My memory's GFlops have just about divided in half of where they were with the Phenom II X6.

What you say seems about right with Bulldozer, the modules arent being recognised properly by windows on 990FX boards which have Full support for bulldozer. Something to do with the way windows assign's task's to the cores, the memory bandwidth was also mentioned in some of BD problems.
There is a reason why they are getting rdy to release a new chipset and it aint cause 990FX is completely different from the 890FX.

BIOS rev 3027 will work with Thuban CPU's but is not optimised for them, if you have a Thuban CPU ASUS recommend using the BIOS's based on the older AGESA code which is optomised for them.

Yes, that's the last BIOS for the Thuban exclusively as of this date.

I think you'll find it's ver. 2002 it added support for the X4 980.

Go with 2 more 42" monitors and you'll not want for another monitor again. Just make sure that the bezel isn't extremely thick. I don't know about you but that's one thing that would drive me absolutely balmy if I had a set up like that. If they do then I would overlap the bezels of the outer and center monitors. thumb.gif
