GA-880GM-D2H Doesnt Support 1090t?

According to the Gigabyte website GA-880GM-D2H rev. 3.1 & 4.0 list the 1090T on their supported CPU page. The rev. 1.x stops at the 1065T, which I believe is lower wattage. My PC will randomly freeze about once a day (Average, sometimes it skips a day, other days it will freeze up twice). I am wondering if it really isn't supported? I bought them together from Tiger Direct as a packaged deal, so I assumed that they worked together. I have a good computer buddy that does programming and networking for an IT firm, and he couldn't really pinpoint a cause for my system to freeze up, so I'm lost.

And another question off topic, can I use one of those self contained liquid coolers (or any) with my setup?

  1. Try testing with only one RAM stick installed. Can you borrow a graphics card from your friend and test? Is it a new setup? Have you reinstalled Windows?
  2. I originally only ran with the 1 RAM stick, I added the 2nd one at 2 or 3 months.
    I ran with the on-board graphics until I got the 5770 a month after the 2nd RAM stick. I tried my brother's MSI GTX650 (I think that's what it was), it didn't make a difference.
    I built the computer in May of 2011, the problems have been there the whole time.
    Yes, I originally had Win 7 Ultimate, then I went to Win 7 HP, I've reinstalled that twice.
    I have also had two different HDDs, the first on was 5400rpm, the 2nd 7200rpm, both the same general model.

    Thanks for your quick reply.
  3. Have you tried updating the BIOS, if updates available?
  4. Yes, I sure have.
  5. Then it might be a motherboard issue, compatibility or other faults.
  6. So the answer to my question is that the 1090T isn't compatible then?
  7. Best answer
    I think that you can get the best answer at this question from Gigabyte (technical support).
  8. OK, Ill try that again, they weren't much help the first time, like they didn't know what I was trying to ask.
