number of cores X core speed = APPR

Like a Phenom x4 965 is 4X3.4=13.6

or

I might be Just Crazy.
Whats a Good Voltage for 3.8Ghz to 4.0 on Air ?


Also does these 2nd Gen Phenoms produce less heat than the 1st Gen ?

This.

I've owned a handful of Phenom II's, including both Black Edition Denebs and Thubans.

If you can afford it, get the Thuban. Both Deneb and Thuban will OC 4GHZ core, but Thuban chips can overclock the CPU-NB much higher than any of the Denebs, and handle higher spec'd RAM, and really this is where they edge out the Denebs in performance.

The drawback to Thubans is much higher power draw and heat output when overclocked. You can indeed disable cores to alleviate that issue and it will still perform much better than a Deneb due to the better IMC.

Personally, I'd get the 1100T, as they have shown to have slightly more headroom than 1090T.

This ^^^ Amen to this......

Wish there was more people like this who spoke real sense and fact around here, No other AMD chips besides Thubans that have the best overclocking abilitys than any other.... It has a higher potential for speed for both Core freq and the Northbridge especially....

And as you said, High spec ram +1 << You can easiliy disable the 2 other cores on the X6 to be a X4, and still overclock better than the Deneb's, whilst maintaining 4.0GHz+ on the Cores and 3.0GHz+ on the Northbridge with ease, Plus you will get a lower TDP once the 2 cores are disabled, which means there will be lower power consumption than a X4

LOL

By the time I even need a upgrade I will be thinking about bulldozer

Anyway I got the X4 since it was FAR cheaper than the 1090T and half of the time games I play dont even use all 6 Six cores

If I am desperate for a X6 I will probably get one in August when the Prices fall.

Im sooo not part of this argument, but im just curious:

What did he say that was any different from everyone else? He basically said hes piece without linking any proof what so ever, just like everyone else lol. Which apprently they all failed at answering.

Again, im just curious.

Do some Reaserch,

People say you get better gaming performance on a Deneb than a Thuban which is entirely untrue, you can disable the 2 cores on a Thuban to make it a X4 which performs much much better with it's higher NB clock.

It doesn't just perform better, but as I said.... disableing 2 cores on a X6 will acually give you a lower TDP than a Phenom II X4 provides.

End result is lower power consumption and much lower heat.

Err, your telling me to do something that you can't even spell btw.

Also, why buy a 6 core processor, to disable two of it's cores, that makes no sense what so ever lol.

If you like 6 cores, then buy a hex, if you lke 4 cores, then buy a quad, and be mature about it?..
