Default PC upgrades

Does an am3 chip work in am3+?

He's what i need, cpu, 8GB ram, an mobo. Over clocking ere we come.
I have a v8 HSF for cooling.

Newegg.com - Open Box: ASUS Crosshair V Formula AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS

Newegg.com - CORSAIR XMS3 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model CMX8GX3M2A2000C9

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDE00ZFBGRBOX

Any compatibility issues?
Any improvements for the same price area anyone know of?

I want the best i can get for about 500$ with AMD

Much likes intel's speedstep or turbo clock w/e is called. Its just a fancy name for the the CPU ramps up to 4.2GHz when it needs it, I belive its 3.8GHz stock then just ramps up to 4.2GHz when it needs the speed. This is for saving power.

Much like my i7, its mostly 1.6GHz on the desktop and doing web browsing and that stuff. Then just ramps up to 4.5GHz(3.8GHz stock turbo clock) when I game or start more CPU hungry applications. Nowadays you overclock the turbo clock multiplier, and not the FSB multiplier

Ah i see. Iv never oc an Intel before.

Personally id rather it just stayed at 4.2GHz lol. The proc ramping never goes well with benchmarking

Haha im sure you could disable it and be at 4.2GHz all the time, you can do that with the intels im sure you could do that with the new bulldozers.

I dont think it could intefere since benchmarking pushes the CPU to the lmit, my clocks didnt went down when I was stressing it with prime95.

Nice 5.1GHz! 900MHz increase from the stock turbo clock. Voltage seems kinda high. Is 1.6V normal for AMD's?
