Win7pro 64bit not utilizing all six cores of my AMD FX-6100 even after hotfix


  • The title say's it all,I have checked it during graphic intensive simplay and only 4 cores show any activity,I have dual radeon6850's running and 16gb of mem and a MSI 890FXA-GD65 mobo,What can I do to get all 6 cores running?

  • Update your 890FXA-GD65 BIOS to one compatible with the FX-6100.

    You need v14 or later. See the CPU Support list for the 890FXA-GD65.

  • Alas I wish that was all there is to it,But I have the latest bios and no joy! Everything reads it as a six core but the performance monitor and some 3rd party apps show only 4 cores operating!MSI Tech support say's I have to do a clean reinstall of my operating system cross my fingers and hope that microsoft renews my licence yet again!
