Hi i was wondering if i could modify the bios's cpu microcode to support any usage of a AMD 1090t. I have all the tools to do this but i don't have any files on the processor microcode. Would a simple microcode allow me to use this 6 core processor? BTW i don't really need the turbo option to work unless it is included in the code. I have read that some AM3 chips work in some AM2. I just don't have the resources to buy a new mobo right now altho i was able to purchase the chip. Could I find a phoenix bios that supports this chip and extract it from there? Or would I be able to buy a modded bios to support this chip and it's features. Right now I have the stock bios running a AMD 6400+ BE as a unknown AMD processor, I was hoping that the 1090t would be filed under the unknown class as i have read that the current bios has all the cpu codes full. Would it be as simple as replacing the cpu file with a newer one from a 1090t supported phoenix bios? So is this possible or should i wait (long)and save up to use this chip? I would be interested in trying a modded bios with AGESA(sp.) or the turbo boost controller.

The board itself simply will not support this line of CPUs, that is why they were blocked from the bios. Yep, saving is all you can do right now...
