Im sure this has been asked many times before, but i cant find a definitive yes/no answer. Could my AM3 motherboard work with an AM3+ bulldozer processor with a bios update? If yes, what is the easiest way to update the bios? Would i need to get faster memory i curently have 8gb of ddr3 1333. I even called asus support and they wouldnt give me a yes/no answer.
ya know, i have the same board with the 1090t in it, I like you, was going to install the x8 with the updated bios. not having the x8 yet i update it anyway...the only downside was. i was running 16gb of cosair vengence memory at 1600mhz without a hitch..however, after the update I got the BSD everytime windows tried to load (7,64bit)..dropped the memory down to 1333mhz and all was good....i did decide the exta 2 cores wasnt worth the price so back to the original bios and 1600mhz....FYI
