I am considering buying a new AM3+ motherboard, and an AMD FX CPU, that would be about equal in price to replacing my current CPU and I can afford that. My psu, ram, gpu, and HDDs would still be compatible. Suggestions? Thanks for the help so far though zigzag I appreciate it very much :]
Budget and location...and who made the PSU?

Should be a good psu....But you might/do want to have it tested first. It could have failed, or worse yet be running out of voltage spec....Don't want to zap the new motherboard.....

Here is a FX-8150 8 core 3.6g Newegg.com - AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8150FRGUBOX $249.99....If you have a good cooler already, that works with AM3 then you can save $10.00 with this Newegg.com - AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Eight-Core Desktop Processor FD8150FRW8KGU - Processors - Desktops

Here is a nice Asrock board: 2/16x slots running 16/4: 2 1x and 2PCI slots....Five 6 SATA $84.99 Newegg.com - ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

A budget buster, but if you want to crossfire at 16x Newegg.com - BIOSTAR TA990FXE AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS $129.99

I was having some PSU trouble a few months ago and I was able to find a tech savvy guy through a friend of mine who tested it said he had to replace a diode after that i've had no trouble from it.


I'm thinking of going with this CPU; Newegg.com - AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4100WMGUSBX since I play games I won't need all the extra cores really just want to make sure the mobo is solid and I don't plan to do any xfire

It may be just me....but no way would I trust that PSU, especially with such a expensive chip and board

You also realize that even the top end FX chip will not even be close to the i7 in performance, and the patch is not much help either.....Rather than get the one mentioned why not a good PII? Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 980 Black Edition Deneb 3.7GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Desktop Processor HDZ980FBK4DGM - Processors - Desktops It has a proven track record and it's a true quad core

Before I would write off the i7 I would try a different Power Supply....Make sure the power button works...ect

I don't have the money to replace the PSU and then fix the machine if it's not i'm quite sure it's the PSU, I took off my h50, and it was practically burnt to the motherboard, seems before I bought this the previous owner must have been OCing the crap out of this CPU.


And the games I play I won't notice the difference between the i7 and AMD despite intel and it's greater infrastructure I just need a few cores clocked around 3ghz being that my i7 is only stock 2.93 and 3.2 turbo boost..anything AMD 3.5Ghz+ should fare nicely. I have no objection going with P2 BE I haven't kept up with the market lately so I made a snap decision for the FX. So what makes the BE a true quad core and FX not? Is the FX dual with 2 virtual cores?

Also isn't the 32nm tech better than the older 45nm?

Ok that explains a lot...I hate when someone overclocks then fails to tell that to the person they sell said item too.

When AMD made the FX They designed it so two cores share some architecture, making a module...so the eight core FX has four modules that can handle 8 "threads".....meanwhile the p2 has 4 cores that stand alone....


Yes in theory a 32nm chip would be better, but the design of the chip comes into play also.....

So how would I be able to test if my mobo or CPU are still functional? Because despite my plans to switch to an AMD setup I could still sell my CPU and Mobo for a good amount of money instead of scrapping potentially good parts.

My persistence to find out the problem has lead to something weird to happen. So I decided to boot up my BSOD rig and try to get it to boot since I hadn't been able to, I did all the things I stated before in different order. Then after no success of getting into safe mode or to boot at all I changed the clock multiplier and OC'ed the CPU to 3.2 and was able to successfully boot into safe mode.
