1055t 95W or 1055t 125W?

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Whats the difference in these cpus? i have read in wikipedia that 1055t 95W has voltage 0.975-1.425V while 125W has 1.0-1.475V. does it mean that in overclocking this chip, 125W 1055t is much better? ill be buying this chip today so i would like to know whats the major difference on those chips. thank you.

Get the 95W. It has higher overclocking abilities mainly, and will make a total difference in your temperature.

Don't grab the 1055T 125W. Get the 95W version.

Show me where 95w 1055T's reach higher overclocks than their 125w counterparts. There is no such evidence.

The only difference is that 95w CPUs use less energy (duh!) and have a higher thermal limit temperature of 73C, rather than 62c for 125w CPUs.

That being said, there's still no guarantee that you'll hit higher overclocks with a 95w CPU.

yes the 95 watt tdp will most likely overclock a little better then its counterpart of 125watt tdp. its has a better chance of overclocking higher becuase its binned a little better. is that too hard to comprehend? lower voltage = over heat enhance better and more stable overclock at the same frequency. op...stick with the 95 watt tdp cpu.

Again, show me the numbers. You can say that theoretically all day, but at the end of the day, most 1055T's top out at ~4.0ghz.

Show me where a 95w 1055T consistently hits 4.0ghz+. If you can't back up your claims, then don't make them.

Don't come out and say "95w CPUs overclock better" and then when someone asks you for proof, reply with "lol it's common sense man is that too hard to comprehend?"

Your reply isn't proof.

Either way, I'd still go with the 95w CPU any day.

See, Less watts = Less Heat, and Higher OC.

Why?

Well, lets say you get a 8+2 Power Phrase motherboard (for example, P8P67 Pro).

You take a 95W CPU, and a 125W CPU (which are the same), and the motherboard supports up to 140W's Max through the CPU Power/VRM's for the CPU.

You OC the 95W processor to 4.6Ghz. Then, you take the 125W chip and only get to 3.9Ghz. You get my drift?

Mainly the motherboard holds you back depending on which one you have. It's always better to aim for a lower CPU-TDP since you could essencially get better overclocks, at higher volts that the motherboard can support safely.

if you think the 1055t tops off at 4.0ghz...u clearly are a noobs...lol. u dont have to be a rocket scientist to figure this situation. lol

Buying a AMD chip at the present time is a silly choice.

Get a 2500k and be done with it.

If you have the choice of 125/95 watt 1055, i'd get the 95 watt because of heat.

Both overclock similar, as they both top out at 3.8-4.2ghz range.

The 95 watt CPU will be easier to overclock on a low end 4+1 board, and will require less cooling to reach a similar overclock.

There is no evidence to say that a 95 watt can OC better than a 125 watt. Please show a source.

But again, the Intel 1555 platform presents better value then AMD at the present time.

@ op: Get the 95W.

@ others: Make a new post and fight over there.
