Worth upgrading to 720/710 over my 9850. My 9850 couldn't get very far on my asus m3a32-mvp deluxe though and I am worried the 720 wont go much further due to the fact I have SB600. Any thoughts or experience with the phenom II's in this board. I cant get a new board at this moment.

I would say its a good upgrade. The 720 is a known overclocker, while the 9850 is not. You can also upgrade you mobo in the future and unlock even more possibilities. Go for it, man!

that and you don't have to worry about not having an SB750 for ACC since the PhII's have ACC built into the chip.

I know the ES 940 chips (which was later found to be an AM3 945 ES chip) clocked to 4ghz on an SB600 motherboard

here is the deal. Upgrade from SB600 to SB750 and the 9850 will clock higher than 3.0. The 720 can do it on either.

I plan on getting a 940 or 720 on my sb600 (just because I like my mobo)

The only thing you won't be able to due is unlock the 4th core since from what I've read requires ACC.

There is no reason why you shouldn't go for the X3! Dirt cheap and they have also been getting a little higher then the 940

you're held back because the 9850 NEEDS the SB750 ACC to be able to clock high. you should get a nice boost in power by switching to a 720BE, and you won't be hindered by not having the SB750.

Just buy the 720 if you like your motherboard. It is cheap and clocks well, especially on water. You can expect to get about 3.7-3.8 easy with your current setup. Any phenom II will fly in your system and could be cheaper than upgrading the motherboard. Besides, a TDP of 95w (720 BE) vs 140w (9850 BE) is great.

man you can push the upgrade since ACC feature is built in those chips so it means they are not picky with the boards you use on them..either way you can still OC them sky high..the ACC feature built with SB750's are meant for the Phenom I series..

+1 ... This 720BE chip is a great overclocker...I have it at 3.6 on air just by upping the multiplier and the voltage to 1.4v.

I upgraded from 9850BE and I am extremely satisfied.
