Keep in mind you are gonna need a decent CPU cooler to OC if you want to get rid of that CPU bottleneck. But you should see huge improvements the more you OC. In time you can always move to a more powerful CPU too that will work on this board. IF AMD stick to AMD3+.
Both SHOULD come with paste, but from time to time they do not. So yeah, should have it though.
Its a pleasure! And let me know what kind of OC you achieve and what improvements you get.
SO i got the gigabyte 990fxa ud3. I have a solid OC from 3,3 to 4,2 ghz. My fps in bf3 is now a solid 60. I am stil debating on replacing my 6100 i do need some help tho. I have been looking a the 6350 and the 8350. I have tested both on friends comp with the same GPU i have and literally their is a 20 fps difference from them to my 6100 which is crazy. I am on a 200 dollar budget, even with my 6100 OCed I am still having bottleneck issues. For fun i uped the OC to 4.9ghz, it was unstable but i still used 3dmark and heaven. In heaven with 4.9 ghz i got a super 15 fps raise and in 3dmark score went up from 7800 all the way to 9000, so cpu is still bottle necking gpu. SO should i go with the 6350 or the 8350. The 6350 is actually different from the 6300, the 6350 is 125W and stock its 3.9 ghz rather then 3.5ghz which the 6300 has. Would this be a worth while upgrade. I am tired of the 6100, cant deal with it anymore.
