I had a feeling this was happening, it's SB750 all over again.
AMD needs to really get its partners to get some good boards out otherwise AM3 will be as big a flop as the origional Phenom.
I've got slightly different problem. I have mobo and I'm waiting for CPU. Could you please misdirect one of those 720BE to me?...I'd be grateful
Anyway, it's good to know you don't turn bad results into fantastic news. Good job!
Much respect, you are that dedicated to completely solving the problems before making a conclusion, props.
By the Way, are there any good sub-$99(USD) motherboards for the 7750BE+ that isn't MicroATX.
Yes yes. I know I could always get the P31 Gigabyte Motherboard along with an E5200, but right now I'm trying for an AMD build as I will replace my HD4850 with a GTX 275(if they ever make more) and give the 4850 to my brother.
I have one request for the upcoming X3 720 overclocking guide, please could you throw an overclocked Q6600 / Q6700 into the mix. I think that all of us, would love to see whether the X3's generally higher OC, can overcome the old timers extra core and possibly greater clock for clock efficiency.
GA-EP45-UD3R + Q6600/Q6700 VS AMD 720 X3 BE + ?, which will take the cheesecake?
I honestly dont know. AM2+?
TT: I'll have to find a retail G0 Q66 now, but yea, might be an idea. I might throw in an E7400 too - dual, triple, quad. £99 to £140
Cool, the Q6700 is also available for some great prices at the moment.
From the various overclocking forums the GA-MA790X-UDP4 for < £100 was being touted as the bang-for-buck OC board that the NorthBridge didn't burn your skin off with. Would be interested if that was benchmarked against.
how did your 720BE die ? What did you throw at it ? Or at what did you throw it ?
I wouldn't want to push mine too far and kill it, i'd be pissed. I noticed yesterday that in games, I needed to jump the vcore to 1.40 in order for the pc to be stable. Otherwise it would crash after a while. However it was only the game that crashed and the pc didn't reboot. It might be something else though.. I really need to format now that I got a new videocard
You can vCore the 45nm Phenoms to 1.55V and they'll still work because its SOI not High-k MG. We didnt kill one yet.
good to know, thanks
Got an ASROCK M3A790GXH 128M 790GX for my 720BE.
It unlocked the 4th core, and OC at 3.8 without sweat.
Crap cooler Im hitting 50 tops now.
46 with stock cooler ATM @2.5Ghz. (Stock 9850BE)
Once I get a new cooler I'm going for the 3.2Ghz
just finishing the m4a79-t
got new cpus for next week, msi and gigabyte am3s after that..
hope you like AMD reviews
Like them? I've been waiting my entire Bit-tech career for them.
