AMD Phenom II x4 960T BE
« on: October 26, 2011, 10:28:28 am »
There's a new (and last) phenom, Phenom II x4 960T Black Edition...
3GHz, cache 8MB, TDP 95W.
Can my mobo accept it? I m thinking about  replace the 720 with this one, is it a good idea?  :)

Its version 1.5

Are they mobos which can accept 720 but cannot accept 960T ?

Here is the CPU listing for your motherboard so you can see for yourself what CPUs are supported. It would appear as if the 960T is not put on the list yet.

Well this cpu is new, so I guess its normal this board not incude it.
Whats the official answer from the Gibayte's site, anyway?

The second question is if 960T is (much)better than 720.

According to the CPU support list the X4 960 Processor is supported. Check here: http://uk.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support-popup.aspx?pid=3621

yes I remember but if you look at the CPU Support list you will see the 960 is supported.

If I can just cut in here agros this may be the official forum but nobody on here works for Gigabyte , we are just volunteers like yourself. I get the feeling you had the idea that we were Gigabyte employees. :-\

I agree. There is no 960T on the list as the Thuban version isnt listed yet. It wil probably be added in the next few days I expect.
