955 @ 4.2 or 1055t ? OC

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
OC'ed my 955 c3 to 4.2 and ran prime 95 for 3 hours...max temp was 59. I also have a 1055t I could sub in. I am basically looking to play games....currently playing deus ex and witcher 2. Looking forward I hope to play battlefield 3, diablo 3 and Skyrim.

My question is whether it is worth it to keep the 955 or sub the 1055t and try to overclock it, or i could wait for a bulldozer later and just sell the 1055t.

Thanks

Unless you can overclock the 1055t well over 4.2ghz, there's no point. I'd sell it for a bulldozer (when the time comes) wink.gif

Thanks! I think that is what I will do.

If all you do is play games, then stick with the 955. In my experience, those extra 2 cores don't come in handy unless you're encoding video.

955. there no point of having more cores with less speed unless you have a program that runs with all 6 cores. for gaming i've seen only games that make good use of 2-4 cores.
