this is turning in to a disaster lol, no delivery yet and now the cpu is now saying out of stock - expected 2/10/12 !! and keeps changing the date every day,

 

decided to get a refund on the parts but have made a couple of changes to the order,

 

will this AMD Bulldozer FX-6100 Black Edition work with the motherboard listed?

 

i've also taken the dvd-rw drive from the list as the motherboard has an ide socket so i will be able to use the old drive

not sure but i would avoid the fx/buldozer series all together, the one i meantioned is faster then that one.

 

its a shame that the site does this to you, i would say, fill in a complain,

I have an FX-6100, it plays Battlefield 3 on high fine, it SHOULD work on any AM3+ socket board providing BIOS is up to date...don't count on that though, I am on my phone so can't check but if someone could confirm that would be great :)

 

Edit: Just realized your board has socket FM1, as far as I am aware, all FX processors are AM3+, thus the FX-6100 will NOT work in your board. FM1 is preliminarily an APU socket.

Steve, I've attached a copy of Gigabyte's "official" CPU support list for the A55M-DS2 board. Not that motherboard manufacturer's cpu/memory QVLs or Support Lists are always accurate and/or up to date, but it doesn't appear that the FX-6100 is compatible with that board.

 

It's my understanding that AM3+ processors (as a general rule of thumb) do not work with socket FM1 motherboards, so my recommendation would be to steer clear of that combination.

That's because the FX-6100 is AM3+, and the A55M-DS2 is FM1 :lol:

My bad, sorry, post edited accordingly

War - since you're fond of calling other contributors out publicly I'll reciprocate. This sentence is irrelevant to the topic at hand. At best it's a waste of written word, and at worst it's inflammatory. Keep to the point and if you have something valuable to contribute then do so without the un-necessary preamble. You've been cautioned..

My fault, sorry :blush:

 

To the OP, the FX-6100 is supported by that board with a BIOS update (With any luck the board will be already flashed with the Bulldozer BIOS)
