You might want to see that you should change that. Either that or improve your grammar skills

If you can find the 95 watt chip, go with that. They're rare in the states, but a few vendors carry them. It'll create less heat and use less energy. ALL CHIPS OVERCLOCK DIFFERENTLY.

If you were serious about overclocking, you would probably be getting either a 1090t or go Intel. =]

There is no proof showing a 95w 1055T overclocking any better than it's 125w predecessor. In fact, in more than a couple reviews they actually didn't clock as well. They are also much more scarce than the 125w version.

Pretty much this.

Also, OP, the current AMD lineup performs a lot less then the new sandy bridge chips at a similar price point.

Take a read up on some reputable review websites about the 2500k.

If you still want a 1055T that's cool. Just informing you.

hyujmn is somewhat right; the little data collected regarding the 95W 1055T has shown that at higher clock speeds around 3.9Ghz+, it requires significantly more voltage in the same way as the 125W 1055T. That said, it has some advantages - specifically, lower TDP for lower heat output and power consumption, as well as the ability to run on more motherboards in case they have weaker VRM setups; potentially better binning, which *may* lead to better chance of overclocking; lower voltage for the same clock speed; higher temperature resistance rating (don't know why is that but hey, good measure). However, don't expect it to overclock any better at higher clock speeds. A 95W 1055T was released in order to cater to prebuilt computer manufacturers that require lower TDP processors to run with their motherboards.

Also, the 95W 1055T is actually a rarity. This is due to it being an OEM chip and not released for retail. The 125W 1055T isn't necessarily any/that much worse however. Don't waste your time searching far and hard for the 95W version, for the 125W version isn't necessarily going to make your experience any worse if at all.

To everyone else in this thread, please be reminded that you are expected to follow the same rules and show the same behaviour that is/are expected of you everywhere else.

it's the same thing... when the 1055t gets to 3.3ghz as the 1090t then it becomes a 125w cpu.

Man i was going to quote nvidia-brownie's statment about amd chips being better than intel chips for gaming for a sig quote. Got deleted before I had a chance. Funny nonetheless.

op: My suggestion to you is to get something from the new intel lineup (2500k). And if you have your heart set on amd, get which ever one of the two is cheaper. Thats what I would do.

Let's remind ourselves that we know nothing about the OP's situation. He may be buying an inexpensive $150-$170 1055T as an upgrade on his AM2+ platform with DDR2 RAM and AM3/x6 support. One who has done proper research will find that the 1055T has a great benefit in multithreaded apps, and in tasks like video editing/encoding, will often approach the same multithreaded performance as a Nehalem 8-thread i7. It is a great choice for a drop-in upgrade in case you happen to already have AM3 hardware or an older AM2+ socket board with AM3 support. However, taking ~$300-$400 and spending it on a brand new platform may be out of the question at the moment.
