5 out of 5 eggs Prolly should have waited for Sandy Bridge to get fixed, but: 02/13/2011

This review is from: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 6-Core 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Desktop Processor HDT90ZFBGRBOX

Pros:

Six solid cores for long-term performance. Turbocore is an acceptable approximation of TurboBoost.
Black edition hexcore for $200.

Cons:

Not much overclocking headroom. Power consumption is high compared to latest Intel offerings. Based on aging architecture.

Other Thoughts:

Was able to get a stable overclock at 3.8 GHz on stock cooler. Failed prime 95 on one core at 4.0, even with stock voltage stepped up by .075 volts. 3.8 was loud with stock fan so I set it to 3.6 and turned turbocore on and set the target to 4. Seems to be running well. Temps don't go above 47 C in prime 95 at 3.6 and are similar at 3.8. Saw 53 at 4 GHz.
