I have FOXCONN A7DA 3.0 and picture

700

I'm using X3 450 and everything's OK. But now I want to upgrade my CPU to X6 10xx (like 1055T or 1090). My friends said it's impossible because my mainboard uses an old chipset.

I have a question: Can I upgrade my CPU and it's stable?

My system is under sign

Im thinking it will, says it supports phenom ii x6 or "Supports socket AM3 processors with HyperTransport™ 3.0 interface
Designed to support the latest AMD Phenom™ II processors " which the 1055t is HyperTransport 3.0

How about phase for CPU

Is it enough ?

Well, according to this thread, that mobo has not been proved to be a failure for high TDP processors. 4+1 phases are not bad as long as the chokes and MOSFETS are quality ones, and the heatsink sure helps. The chipset is able to support hexacore CPU's with ease. I have read a bit about this mobo, and Foxconn heavily advises to update the BIOS since the old ones aren't good in regulating voltage.

I would advise not overclocking on that motherboard though. 4+1 phases, even when they're good and heatsinked, are not enough for overclocking.

Actually, it has. There has been one recorded failure on this board in January, on a lower voltage (<1.4V) Phenom II x4 overclock. A weak 4+1 phase known for failure should be avoided for use with 125W Phenom II x6. Cooling doesn't necessarily prevent failure in all cases, VRM capacity may be an issue. I think the low demand might explain the lack of extra failure incidents to be found.

If I use in df, is it OK?

The 95w x6 would be a great option in my opinion, although unless you are doing cad or some other core heavy programming, I would go with the 960t (also 95w and unlocked). One more thing you should do is remove the sinks and check that they are making contact with the vrm's and chipsets. I read somewhere that foxconn boards have been found to have poor or no contact with the sinks.
