Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This CPU/CPU combo has what is takes to run pretty much anything you can throw at it (within reason), which is more than can be said for single core atom solutions sans discrete card. I would have preferred an AMD solution, but the CPU side of the C-50 is just a little too weak for Windows 7 (IMO and with the way I use netbooks). The C-60 should make things a lot more competitive.

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 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDT90ZFBGRBOX Desktop Processor

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.

GIGABYTE GA-890GPA-UD3H AM3 AMD 890GX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Charges via USB even when the computer is off.
USB 3.0, SATA III, dual x16 ports and 3 PCIe x1 ports.

Cons: BIOS doesn't allow half-steps for multiplier overclocking. You get x17, x18, x19, etc...but no x17.5, x18.5. You can do half-steps for Turbo-core, however.

Other Thoughts: This board is expensive but you get what you pay for in terms of feature set and quality.
