Please, I just need advice.
I’ve got this Motherboard it is a GA-MA785GM-US2H AMD version 1.1, I want to upgrade it and if possible make it consume less power. At the moment am using this processor AMD Phenom 9600 Quad –Core BE, its CPU usage is up to 95 watts.
I was thinking of getting a Phenom II X6 1065T and reduce its speed up to 2.6 GHZ because its CPU usage is also 95 watts, but I want to know, if I do that will it reduce its power usage? and If it reduce the speed can I upgrade it again whenever I need to do stuff that needs some high speed like video conversions?
I was also thinking of using this processor, the 910e its CPU usage is 65 watts but the speed is a bit lower than the other processors. How do I work on the processors to get a good piece that will be fit for me for whatever need or what do I need to put together to get a perfect piece that would be faster and at the same time uses less power?
