New Build Soon(mb help)

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Ok so im about to make a new build. I hate mb shopping because there is just soo much to choose these days its crazy:wheee:. I have my eye on the biostar TA890FXE. Is it a good mb for a AMD phenom II 1090T BE? Ive heard some good reviews and some heating issues =(. I currently own a biostar which is why i sorta wanted to get one again. I love the T-Series and its really easy to OC with. Im a noob when it comes to oc lol! I just want to make sure i get my money's worth. Maybe someone has a better option for me?

My plan is:

CM 690II Nividia edition( hehe plan to name my new build green hornet and do some sweet mods wink.gif )
AMD Phenom II x6 1090T BE 3.2ghz
G.skill ripjaws 8GB(2 x 4gb) 1600(1333 for budget maybe and OC to 1600)
Plan to max out my case with fans for good air cooling
And use my old Coolermaster Hyper 101 or go for Corsair Cooling Hydro Series H50(a tiny bit expensive hehe but i might do it)

I'm planning to use my current video card for the new build.
My Nivdia GTX 570

what do you think? let me know and maybe some suggestions for my mb and setup?smile.gif

If you plan on going for the x6 make sure you use a Mobo with a 8+2 Phase and not the 4+2 like that biostar you pointed out. .

That particular biostar will work just fine with an x6, in fact, it's one of the best overclocking boards around for 140w CPU's. I highly recommend going with the Biostar ta890fxe if you plan on OCing your 1090t.

Take a look at the Biostar tab in this thread: http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherboards/946407-amd-motherboard-power-phase-list.html

The TA890FXE is recommended for 140W+ CPU's, or you could take a look at el_gappo's review on the board. It's in the OP of this thread: http://www.overclock.net/amd-motherboards/748349-official-biostar-800-series-club.html

el_gappo has been benching his 1090t on this mobo for ages without any problems whatsoever.

If you can't hold out till bulldozer arrives early summer hopefully, get one of these ASUS', because ASUS still says that with a BIOS update, they will run a BD

Sweet guys thanks. Also you think that my hyper 101 will be fine for cooling if i plan to oc? or should i go with my second plan and use the Corsair h50. Plan to go for 4.0ghz seeing that's like the average I've seen everyone do without doing huge amount of mods for cpu cooling and whatnot. I really liked the biostar and im not to hyped up for the BD unless i someone get a magic pay raise to pay for it lol! yea its cool and all but i soo know its going to burn your banks for a couple months. That will be my next build after im done with college. screw rent! new build =D = bi-winning lol

Don't expect 1333Mhz generic 4GB DIMMs to reach 1600
From what I've seen most top out at ~1450 if they OC at all

Most 4GB generic 1333 CL9 DIMMs use earlier ICs when 4GB DIMMs were in their infancy - ICs that are okay for running at these settings but not so much anymore for better settings.
