Both had same overclock
i just think he got a lower binned one

EDIT: im sorry if it seems like im trolling... im not trying to

You aren't trolling, my chip just sucks

I was considering an upgrade here anyway, either to a real quad core, a hex core, or an Intel quad core.

I think the 555's can run hotter then the 955's can,t they? Like aint they 70c max and 955's 62c

Thanks in advance
the 555 unlocked X4 will use more watts than a 955
mine uses 160 watts and 180 watts overclocked

a lot of 555s (from my experience) won't unlock these days. if you get one that does, consider yourself lucky. i got 3 555s and none of them unlocked a single core. for $60 brand new i can't complain though.

Yeah this is the only one Ive unlocked out of 4, been trying OC it, not much joy in that department, the 4th core plays up fine on 3 at 3.6 with cpu/nb at 2500, so keeping it on stock X4, cant complain

just get 955be or something better like the 965 and you dont have a hassle in playing around with the FSB etc or trying to unlock anything like that.

Your B55 doesnt have a higher rated TDP then the 955. The 70C TDP is for the 80w 2 core. If you unlock the chip to a 4 core Deneb, you are then under those thermal thresholds which is 62C, and your wattage and core reading will be much higher, although not easily monitored.
