phenom 980 ???? - Page 4

post #31 of 33
I have such fond memories about the 955BE (my first overclocking chip). I may buy a 980 simply as a collectors item (as mentioned) I do find myself working with the cpus to see what OC I can get but then putting them back to where they run cool for everyday use. I have this 720 that is such a workhorse and I have a very hard time getting it to break 24C in everyday use. There just seems to be something about these AMD tri-cores that get the work done and always run cool. I think I am stuck with my AM3 and 1366 platforms as new money is just not comming but there could be worse places to be stuck.

Yes! I was referring to a new builder. I suggested to my friend that he not buy the 965 over the 955. We are at the same max overclock, 4.1, on air, and I am pretty sure it would be a similar situation with the 955 vs. the 980. Heat did not stop us, the voltage did. Of course, voltage would eventually cause the heat to stop the overclock, but we were not willing to go over 1.45v. I think we could have hit 4.2 stable, but only at 1.5v, which would really be pushing the heat up quickly on air. Anyway, I think that the C3 955 or 965 is the best option for overclockers. It will save a few $$.
