Hey guys ima go out and purchase a 1090t BE cpu its at 3.2ghz and 125w. I have a gigabyte MA790x-UD4P mobo and it says it supports the AM3 socket so it should fit all good. My question is will it recognize the 6 cores or will i have to flash the bios ? Also will a 550w psu be enough ? at this time i have a dual core phenom 2 x2 550 BE and a 6850 gpu, 4gb of ddr2 and 2 hds, 1 cd/dvd rom and like 6 fans. Just wana make sure everything will work before i buy it. Thanks.

I have a 550w corsair psu, and i just looked at the site it looks like the new f10c bios update will be needed for the 1090t.

I think i got the am3 i have a 550 right now and thats am3, I believe those are all the sockets that the mobo supports. am2 am2+ and am3

An AM2+ socket will support most AM3 chips. You should be ok with that PSU. You migh want to look at replacing that before too long though with your GPU and now CPU

Yeah, that PSU should be fine.

Update the BIOS first.

okay i need some help i flashed this bios before but now im having a problem i dont know why. It says just to put the one file onto the floppy disk and then start q flash and pick the file. But if i just use the file that ends with .10c q flash does not find it. So i check in windows and its on the floppy but not visible. So i put the flash file with it and then it sees it. But when it reads it i get a bios id check error ?? I read about it and it says the the bios version is not for my mobo. I dont get it on the gigabyte site they only have one revision for my board.

So im lost what am i doing wrong ?

I have the same board. It does support the X6.

I think it was the best AM2+ board ever made.

Are you sure its the correct bios for the board?

Try downloading it again just in case it was corrupted.

If no success, try flashing another version of the bios and see if that works (tells you if your doing something wrong or if the problem is the file)

Also try using a flash drive instead of the floppy

yeah i actually dont know wtf is up sometimes q flash see's the file and sometime it doesnt. Guess it does not matter if the flash file is there or not. So im not sure and yes i have tried re downloading it and same problem, and yes my mobo is rev 1.0 so it is the correct file. Right now im on your 3rd step i downloaded a diff version and i will try to update it with that. If that dont work il try the flash drive. Any good tutorials on how to set it up as bootable ?

I don't think it needs to be bootable. It should recognize the drive if its plugged in at startup. But it has to be Fat32. I don't think it sees NTFS.

I would have done that step 3rd. I wrote them out of order. But no harm I suppose.

yup ur right just formatted to fat32 and it worked like a charm wish did it the first time lol.

But yeah installed it and it works very nice. On windows experience with dual core i had 6.8 and now i have 7.5

Also my hd only is 5.5 on windows experience its a sate 7200rpm i believe. How do i make it faster ? Or do i need an ssd?

Sorry for all the questions, lastly the 1090t has the turbo boost in bios, its set to auto and then it says something like turbo cpb or similar to that not sure and its on disabled. Should i just leave it or enable it ?

Even though it is a SATA 7200 RPM drive, it is probably an earlier iteration of SATA, and you could probably enhance that through a SATA II or III HDD or SSD. I know my SSD shows up at 7.9 (highest value currently allowed through windows experience)


If you are not overclocking go ahead an enable Turbo CPB. Basically it does this.

If only Core 0-2 (3 cores) are being used, it will increase the multiplier of those 3 cores, while downclocking the other 3 cores to keep the CPU as a whole withing the 125W thermal limit.

Simple answer, it speeds up the used cores above the turbo value, and slows down the unused cores.

ahh okay, Yeah i actually might try overclocking it so il just keep the turbo off for now. I had one more question but forgot what it was, well when it comes to be ill let you guys know.

Blow money on a ssd to improve a windows index score you can edit with notepad eeek

Nothing wrong with Sata 7200 drives. It does its job quiet well. That is storing data. May take a few seconds longer to load but once its loaded it doesn't interfere anymore. The day when a ssd can give me a fps boost then they will be actually be useful. I got patients not like a few seconds going to make my life shorter

true. it just annoys me say on start up to load everything or when i open files and it takes a while for them to open up. But maybe in the future il get a ssd.

Ooo, and my other question was since i only have 4gb of ram if i got another 4 to make it 8gb of ddr2 1066mhz would it help in multitasking ? I just feel like when im playin bf3 and window out of it to do other things feels like it thinks to long.

More RAM is almost always a good thing. Whether or not it will be noticeable in the short term, I'm not sure.

multitasking more cores more of the factor. most of the data the cpu process it gets from its caches

^ a okay, shouldnt the 6 core be enough for multitasking? I found some a-data sticks for 40 bucks, they are pc6400 800mhz, but i can overclock them to 1066 right? Or should they support it either way?

No they don't support 1066 natively. But it might overclock to it, depending on the stick.

And, 6 cores is more than enough. Flight Sim X is the only program I know of that can use more than 4 threads....
