Phenom 2 6 core 95 watt cpus?
Well on my mobo, I happen to just check and see there is a bios update and it support p2 6 core 95watt verisons. Are there out yet? Don't see any on the egg of course.

There are 95W 1055T's out there*, "HDT55TWFK6DGR" (OEM = no heatsink), but you'll probably have to look for "HDT55TWFGRBOX" since that's the retail box version.
*I haven't seen them in the US but it seems like I ran across one on a European site. Can't say for sure, though ...

Yeah i found them forsale 200+ depending. Few sites that google brought up one with 1600+ reviews 5 stars or whatever.
So hell maybe i'll take the plunge and just snag a 6 core lol coming up here shortly. But just not sure if it's worth it when i could probably do everythingwith a quad for almost a 100 cheaper.
But would be nice to hav eit lol.

Just to be sure you got the 95W version and not the 125W version of that CPU look for the 'W' after 55T ...

The 95w never came to the US in a retail form. That's why they're so expensive. The theory is that the OC headroom is higher, but IMHO why do you need an X6 over 4.1ghz? e-peen?~AMD PhenomII X4 955 BE @ 3.8ghz ~~ Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P~~Zalman CNPS9500~~2x2GB Mushkin Redline (1066 5-5-5-18 @ 2.1v)~~XFX 5770~~Corsair HX650W~~X-Fi Platinum Fatal1ty Champion~~

You can run the 125 watter in a 95W board but you will want to under-volt it to keep it from killing the board. I would only do this if I were planning to get a better board but needed the chip now. Like Ice and others said, you can look for the 95 as a same alternative. The main issue will be if the board can detect the chips configuration, thus your BIOS update stated in the OP.Main RigsDevelopement -Phen2 1090T on Asus 870
