Also he is black edition. That makes him better.

Do you really think AMD would lift the NDA and let all the reviews come out when proper bios support from vendors isn't present? No... Just like pre-release leaked performance was bad, so are the retail chips. The architecture itself isn't that great and there are no two ways around it. No magic bios is going to make it perform exceptionally better, probably just help with turbo core and stuff like that.

That being said, Zosma all the way! I believe most unlock (although not guaranteed) and it should clock pretty nicely (4ghz+ no problem) and faster clock for clock than Slowdozer.

$130 is way too high without flexing considering they are BNIB for $170. They were like $15 off a few days ago too.

I'm gonna go Zosma, if it clocks even similar to the other person's I saw on OCN they are beast. He was doing 4GHz with 1.29v... 4.25GHz with 1.39v or something. He hadn't even tried to unlock it yet either. Or he just got one of the best chips ever made.

It would be cool to just have a Phenom II X5 hehe if it only unlocked one core.

Edit: My 960T is on the way! Let's hope for an unlock! $115 BNIB.
