(Thanks) This is what is bothering me. The motherboard runs at 2400MHz and the FX-6300 is at the support list. Ok, it runs on the board, but wasn't they supposed to place a note saying that the board runs with the HT below the standard FX frequency? Will it affect a more aggressive overclock? Even a mild one?
It makes me feel cheated. In fact, the AMD motherboard scene is chaotic.
At the biggest Brazilian forum of computers people now are stopping to refer AMD CPUs because of that. A real compatible motherboard with the FX, chipset 990, is much pricier than a B75 or H81. In the end, an i5 with B75 or H81 is better and cheaper in Brazil. The cost benefit advantage they had is gone.
I was kind on in the fence about it, but with this HT issue I am also going to stop referring AMD CPUs. I mean, the D3P is brand new and it does not come with the standard frequency of the FX? Come on, AMD, Phenom was discontinued already.
Someone at the Gigabyte forum said that the 970 chipset might be a defective 990, hence why they don't come with 2600MHz, the same way the Intel-E is a defective Xeon.
I don't know what to think, but it does not make me happy.
