I am confused with the Giga-byte cpu support chart from my mobo. I tested the power supply, a W beast and it is fine. Our calculated values are checked against thousands of individual user ratings. I was wondering for a quick exchange of mobo. Home Help Login Register. To fully understand that point you need to know that all AMD 7-series Northbridges are built on the same core design except the various models have different performance features disabled none of which relate to CPU compatibility.

In all my time ive never seen a CPU fail unless its been dropped, or had silly volts pumped through it etc.

Today’s hottest Amazon Ebay Newegg. Want to hear a funny story, a few weeks ago they made a mistake and put back the AM3 ready graphic on the motherboard page so I decided to put my theory to the test. Windows detects the Regor core and Cool and Quiet power saving features are working since you can see the core voltage drops, the multiplier drops to 4x and the cpu is running at Mhz on idle. Not really an issue for most people as people should know better.

Well I tried removing both ram modules and powering on – no post I tried fitting just one stick and then swapping them. In reality the cpu will be idle most of the time using much less power.


UserBenchmark: Gigabyte GA-MADS3 Compatible Builds

POL-User, 12 months ago. But I don’t sadly. Installed the cpu and YES!! I know alot of people were screwed over by Gigabyte here so I felt the need to provide some information to help them. Do Gigabyte actually monitor these forums?

GA-MADS3 (rev. ) | Motherboard – GIGABYTE Malaysia

RUS-User, 14 months ago. They claimed AM3 support for this board so the reference design supports AM3 from the beginning else how could they make such a claim. I have vmware server installed and am running about five virtual machines. This is the mw770 dishonest business practice I ever saw from a company. My source of inspiration for going ahead with this experiment was this thread over at HEXUS community forums.

I also mentioned issue about DDR2 Mhz compatibility from here http: The only purpose for the bios update for this board would be to allow the bios itself to recognise the cpu name correctly instead of calling it Phenom II.

How do I eliminate one or the other?

How come ASUS does not lie to customers? This is unfair to customers. There is no reason why that CPU you want will not work on your motherboard as far as I know. Bench your build Size up your PC in less than a minute.


This is all thanks to this thread, so thank you. How it works – Download and run UserBenchMark.

Effective speed is adjusted by current prices to yield a value for money rating which is geared towards gamers. I guess I tried to ignore a problem. You can quickly size up your PC, identify hardware problems and explore the best upgrades. My questions are when under a load, does the hyper transport go above mhz? Please enter your feedback here. Glad I could help. All you keep doing is talking a load of rubbish and ripping off customers.

UserBenchmark will test your PC and compare the results to other users with the same components. Thank you Darkseid and jwill for clearing es3 up. HRV-User, 9 months ago.

The hyper transport frequency stays the same when idle or under load, what changes is the cpu multiplier.
