Default Re: Phenom on Newegg

From the reviews that I have read, my impression is that the TLB trouble effects ALL of the Phenom's. AMD released the 2.2 and 2.3 chips because they are BELOW the 2.4 GHz threshold at which point the dragon rears its head. I will have to re-read the Anandtech review, but I believe they mentioned that the problem manifested itself in overclocked chips just as Naga has said.

As Naga already suggested, you should get yourself a highend motherboard, and an x2 4000 brisbane or something of the like until the bugs are ironed out of the Phenom's. Once the bugs are corrected, sell the x2, and get the Phenom. This is what I am doing with my new build. I got a nice motherboard, and an E6750, and once Penryn's are at a reasonable price, I can upgrade.


Rushing through a build is the best way to find yourself in trouble of some sort or another.
