Question  cpu compatible by janamar

I am looking to upgrade my pc and I have a Asrock N68C-S-UCC motherboard and would like to know if the CPU with code number HTD55TFBGRBOX (AMD Phenom 2 X6 1055T 2.80 GHz (socket AM3)will be compatible. I will be purchasing the cooling fan too.

If these are non compatible, could you please advise which are so I can fit the correct CPU.

Many Thanks

Answer by mohamedA on Saturday, November 19, 2011
yes this should be fine , the asrock n68-s-ucc should support am3 cpus

Question  Compatible? by newmodel

Hi Im looking to upgrade and was wondering if this chip is compatible with Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 990FX (Socket AM3+) DDR3 PCI-Express ATX Motherboard?

Also I want to save some money by using my original case, memory, PSU and cpu cooler fan (heatsink) which was all purchased from you guys as a pre-built system called Gladiator Exodus - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit.

So if I stick this new MOBO and CPU in this case will it still work with what I have?

Answer by mohameda on Wednesday, October 26, 2011
yes it should work with that motherboard , yes it should be fine

Question  Gaming by armo

Hi, i wondered if this was good for gaming? Or would the quickcode 41581 be better? Im using it with a 560ti.

Answer by mohameda on Wednesday, October 12, 2011
it should be fine , i believe there will not be a big difference expect the 1055 will be better at multi threaded apps

Question  which one is better by Joe

Which one of these processors is better this one QUICKCODE 40095 or this one 35943

Answer by andrewn on Monday, August 1, 2011
Really depends what you are doing with it, software which can make full use of all 6 cores will perform better with this CPU, whereas with software which only uses 2 or fewer cores the intel might have the edge. In the same price range I'd be inclined to go for the newer quick code 43840 anyway, or even 43219 if you can stretch the budget a little.

Question  will this...? by MozZ

Will this work with Quickcode:40392 if not can you link me to the best AMD that will and a power supply/RAM/cooling suitable for it.

I currently have that motherboard and a gts250

Answer by jorged on Sunday, July 10, 2011
This should be fine.
