P2X4 955BE vs P2X6 1035t?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Simple. Should I pick up a Phenom II X4 955 or a Phenom II X6 1035t? I'll most likely be running the processor with a Thermaltake SpinQ heatsink on my current motherboard. I plan to overclock as much as I can. I use my computer for gaming, internet browsing, folding, and streaming.

I know since the 955 has an unlocked multiplier, it'll OC much better. What do you think the highest stable clock I'd be able to get out of each one would be?

I'd get the 955.

Higher clock speed and overclocks like a champ!

No Phenom II x6 BIOS support on that motherboard. You will have to take a 955.

Couldn't I flash the BIOS?

I'd get the 955, too.
You can aim for 4 GHz easily, especially if it's the C3 stepping.

Even an updated BIOS will not support Phenom II x6.

For overclocking purposes I recommend you ensure the VRMs are properly cooled.

How exactly do I install these on my motherboard? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835708011&cm_re=enzotech-_-35-708-011-_-Product

Was trying to look for a guide but couldn't find anything

They should come with thermal tape and you can just stick them on the chips

This is not true.
My 1055t overclocked much better than my 955.
