  • Phenom II x6 1090t

    Hey guys im thinking of getting this new CPU for my 2nd mid ranged gaming PC. Would this CPU be compatible with my old GA-M720-US3 Motherboard?
    Thanks

    Yeah looks like it. How much are you spending and why? It's a very old processor. I've quite literally just ditched my phenom II x6 1055t for ryzen, it lacks SSE 4.2 so it's not VR compatible. Had lots of issues getting my rift to work with it so looking forward to moving on.

    If your budget is tight, perhaps wait for Ryzen 5/3 or have a look at a 2500k or something.

      Im gonna spend about 70 on it which is a good price, its so i can reduce the bottleneck in demanding games since my CPU is holding back my GTX 1060

        What you're saying doesn't tally up with your sig whatsoever, but sure, it's a good chip. What games you playing at what resolution? It's 7 years old now.

            Oh you have a 1055t? Probably not a worthwhile upgrade to the 1090t then.

            Your decision I guess, I have my 1055t clocked at 3.8 ghz, pretty sure you can push them further too. Try that?

              My motherboard isn't that good, i can clock my 1055t to 3.4 Ghz stable, but the temps are pretty high, so i need a new cooler for it as well. I heard that the 1090t is a good overclocker and it can OC to 4ghz when i get a decent air cooler. If i buy this CPU for 70 i can sell my older 1055t for 40 so im upgrading my system for about 30 i hope

                specifically, the OEM 1055T (95W) was renowned as one of the best clockers from the Thuban lineup as it was specifically made with a lower thermals in mind. Under water my friend managed to hit close to 5ghz stable, with a solid 4.8GHz as he day to day setting. The 1090T is only really worth it if you run it at stock settings or a little over (3.8/9ghz stock?) and didn't they do a 1100T? Though, you could always sell your 1055T (assuming its a 95W) as they are gold dust on ebay, enthusiast overclockers love them

                So worth checking to see if you have the 95W or the 125W

                Also, even 30 for a sideways upgrade is too much.

                  My 1055t has been a golden chip, lasted me since release. Never realised they were saught after on the bay, guess I could always sell it and box frame another cpu, but I have a fond connection with this one xD. I'm on a h115i and have constant low temps on a 3.8ghz OC, even at 100% load. Solid as a rock. Was hoping ryzen would follow suit with temperatures, but I guess I have enough to cope with it xD.


                  Makai, how come you have 3 separate machines?

                    see my edit ;D

                    Temperature wise with Ryzen, I am testing it with a fairly mid-range cooler. Corsair didn't get an AM4 bracket out to me with the H115i cooler. temperature wise, its on par with intel. I think its max safe thermals is 85-90, but I would recommend keeping it under 80. (same kinda guideline as intel really.

                    Also I would guess multiple setups are for, 1 streaming, 2. dedicated server/lan setup,

                      They are just machines that ive gathered over time, my HT PC has problems atm, something wrong with the motherboard.. My other 2 machines are for gaming for when i move out with my best friend we can have Lan parties and game over Steam/Origin.
                      Unfortunately my 1055t is 125w which explains why it doesn't OC as well it should do, I think im gonna go for that chip though, trying to get the best out of my mid ranged gaming rig.. Atm it runs BF1 (Sniper Map) at 30-50 FPS on Ultra settings, but the FPS drops when there is a lot going on (Explosions and stuff) So it wont bottleneck as much.. Thanks for your help people

                        You say that... but If you are currently looking to pay 70

                        Id like to point out that I managed to upgrade my friends system for a total of around 170 using a H97 motherboard, an intel i5 4570 and 8gb memory. throwing 70 away for an extra 400MHz isn't really great value imo.

                          Not worth putting money into a dead platform. People will be selling up now that Ryzen is out to either buy one or take advantage of Intel price drops. This means you should be able to pick up an i5 cpu/mb/ram combo for a decent price.
