[msi] msi 890fxa-gd70 bios 1.9, AM3+ support released - Page 2  

post #11 of 32
Old thread. I doubt very much it will disable AM3 support and also, unless you have a board with a black socket, you probably wont be able to run Bulldozer either. So for almost everyone the bios is useless.

Seeing how none of these boards have a black socket I think they will support Bulldozer.

Why do you think all other motherboard makers are using the new black sockets now? AMD have already said it wont work and MSI support say the same too. Also photo's of the sockets show an extra pin in the AM3+ black socket which means AM3+ CPU's wont fit into AM3 sockets although AM3 CPU's will go into AM3+ motherboards.

Man, I guess I got my hopes up. If MSI is stating that it wont work and there is a bios update and information on the site claiming to support it(even the picture on the site has a white socket),I wonder if they will release a newer revision of the board that supports bulldozer.

Did anyone ever confirm that existing mobo's with the original AM3 sockets would fit BD chips? All these BIOS' coming out for AM3 boards to support AM3+ but I have a feeling it will only work in the newer boards with an updated socket with the extra pin. So while it may work with that model of board, it will only work in the newly made and sold versions of said boards that have the updated socket. I don't think they have ever confirmed either way though. I just don't see how it can work without updated socket.

BD isn't out yet, so we can't really confirm it yet.

However, Asus said that current (white socket) will be able to run AM3+ chips with a bios update.

But this has been talked about many, many times in a lot of threads. The pin count argument is also not valid because AM3 is not using all pins so unless AM3+ chips use several more pins, it may as well fit.

We'll see.

Pfft, I wouldn't run BD on that board with stock voltages. A bios update doesn't fix a crappy VRM design.

As for the MSI socket, here's my rebuttal:


Seems like even MSI doesn't know.

Also just because there's an extra pin hole in the socket doesn't mean Bulldozer will fill all those pin holes. AM3 for example, the socket has 941 pin holes... the CPU only takes up 938 of those.

If the leaked information is to be believed, the FX-8130p has the same 125W TDP as the 1090t. I've been running a 1090t on a an 890fxa-gd70 at stock voltages since May of last year with zero issues. It's been solid as a rock.
