AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2GHz 6MB 6 Cores 125W Socket AM3 Desktop CPU

5 out of 5 eggs 2011 Asus Board PC Supercharged 07/24/2015

This review is from: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T 3.2GHz 6MB 6 Cores 125W Socket AM3 Desktop CPU

Pros: This chip doesn't bench as fast as the newer AMD FX chips or upper end Intel's, however It kicked my Windows Aero score up to 7.5 with external graphics and SSD. This chip replaced an AM3 socket 3 core Athlon and it makes Windows 7 Pro hull!

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: Make sure to use a 125W CPU cooler. I used Arctic Silver thermal paste and bought a DEEPCOOL GAMMAXX S40 CPU Cooler 4 Heatpipes 120mm PWM Fan. I love this cooler it stands as high as the fan and blows out the back of the case. I'm running 29 C!

5 out of 5 eggs Look Here For Drivers Previous HD 03/11/2014

This review is from: MSI Radeon HD 7770 R7770-PMD1GD5 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Card maxed out 3DMark 3D test in Windows 8.1. Easy install. Fan noise not noticeable in midsize room. SOLID CAPACITORS WILL NOT BULGE! I have replaced my share of mylar capacitors on video cards.

Cons: Read Comments for drivers.

Other Thoughts: I read the comments before I got my card about all kinds of driver issues. Here is what to do if you own an AMD HD card and you are upgrading. 1 Download and install the latest Catalyst for the newer card while you have the old card in. Don't worry the payload carries the drivers for the whole HD series. Once you install the new card your screen will come up fine and then re install Catalyst from your original download and it will update the driver.

MSI Radeon HD 7770 R7770-PMD1GD5 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Very affordable for GDDR5 with extra cooling.

Cons: Dual slot can be a cramp for some of today's smaller mother boards.

Other Thoughts: I've seen a lot of issues about drivers. This won't be applicable to everyone however if you have a lower end AMD HD series card installed you should be able to change the card out and have the drivers install from the latest Catalyst download installed previous to physical hardware change.
