ALC887 codec? At least use ALC892.
Laptops generally use ACPI to control the fan, so pwmconfig is the wrong approach...Also, an other question: I have a lenovo laptop with kabini APU......but running "pwmconfig" to try to make a config file for fancontrol says: "There are no usable PWM outputs." Is this because the laptop doesn't let you control the fan speed at all? Or is that because linux hasn't added support for fan control for kabini APUs yet?..
Such a pity, I cannot find any PCIe 3 boards compatible with fx-8350. So it's all APU now... hmm :/
This is why every system builder buys the cheapest of the new socket launch chips., so that during transitional periods to newer processor architectures on the same socket you can put it in the board to update the BIOS.
You'd know this if you built comps or did comp repair.
No, the FX-9590 is the last CPU and the 990FX the high end for the AM3+ socket, with the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD7 the most high end mobo
AMD's roadmap says it's all APUs from here on out with the focus on HSA. They've partnered with most all of the ARM SoC manufacturers to ensure the concept gets entrenched.
Previously i had a F2A85X-D3H mobo that has a supported ITE 87xx monitoring chip and i supposed this one will use that too but it seems i was mistaken....
But anyway, the mobo works fine, i have it for a few months now and had no issues with it (i have a A8-6500 APU with it). Thermal monitoring is still possible for both the CPU and IGP, but the reportred values from the k10temp (CPU) and radeon (GPU) drivers are not real ones especially when idle - instead they are used internally for thermal throttling and they approach real values when the chip is under load for some time (for example i have 3-5C reported when idle).
