Reviews and Problems with AMD Phenom II X6 1090T (HDT90ZFBGRBOX)

Good-if expensive-upgrade for AM2+/3 motherboards which won't take FX CPUs.

Summary: This is a reasonably fast CPU which isn't afraid of a few threads. I bought one to upgrade an AM2+ motherboard which wouldn't support more modern FX-series CPUs, rather than doing a full rebuild. This CPU made a very noticeable difference in performance over my slightly overclocked Phenom 8750.
Well woth the money if you pick one for less then 150.00

Summary: This very good processor for the price. I own both a AMD Phenom II x6 1090T and Intel i5 650. Phenom II paired with gigabyte 990FX UHD3 ver3. it hold's it own. Overclocked to 3.9GHz on stock voltage. runs around 38 - 40c idle on load 48 - 51c Prime 95 100% load. It plays games well.
Summary: I recommend this processor- Plenty of power that you will "feel". Feels faster booting, benchmarking, and loading games. Loads Battlefield 3 in very little time, even with hard drive, almost instant with SSD and 8+ gigs of RAM. My GTX 480 is the bottleneck now.
Great poduct for the money! theres some future proofing since its a 6 core!

Summary: If you're running applications that are well threaded and you're looking to improve performance in them, AMD generally offers you better performance for the same money as Intel. It all boils down to AMD selling you more cores than Intel at the same price point.
Summary: Looking at this from a dollar spent per unit of power, this CPU is about the best value you can get (at the time of this writing). Slightly outperforms my i7 920. Paired this with 4 GB CORSAIR XMS3 DHX and the Gigabyte Socket AM3/AMD 890GX motherboard.
Summary: 1090T as the current flagship for AMD consumer CPU, is a mid-range CPU Processor that has the bang for the buck. Highly recommended for gamers who wants that performance, but low on budget. High marks with the proper hardware. Easy OC, and runs cooler then any other X6 processor.
Summary: The first one I received was very unstable even at standard speeds. The second will overclock, but one core is no use above 3.8GHz. Perhaps they are not as good as the X2's on the overclocking front, but with 6 cores to play with, maybe the max speed isn't that important?
Summary: I switched to 6 core Phenom 1090T from 2 core Phenom 550. I was hoping for bigger performance boost in photo editing. There was a boost, but not as big as benchmarks would suggest. What more, the CPU makes a high-pitched squeaking sound under heavy load. Can't eliminate that.
Summary: I have had a fine time using my CPU. But the heat sink and fan are very small looking rather underpowered. And despite its size the fan is very loud. I would recommend buying a separate heat sink and fan if you buy this CPU.
