seriously ask urself apply some logic......does gaming need more than 4 cores with lower frequency or a quad cpu with higher frequency...all the while op will be saving some bucks opting for x4 980 be ...... nuff said :/
What is the price difference?
Naive? Why not get a 955 by that reckoning and OVERCLOCK it yourself rather than go for a factory overclocked indentical ship which costs more.

I had a Phenom II 940BE which could hit 3.7ghz with ease.
Recommending a 980 because of higher stock frequencies on OCN is "naive".

You should be recommending a lower model and overclock himself. This is OCN!

The reason I would recommend the 1100T is that thurbans are good overclockers, better than deneb in most cases and 2 more cores if games start to use more cores in the near future.

However, 2500k owns all and I personally would not be putting together an AMD gaming rig right now. Intel is the only choice.

Also, what are your RAM timings?
Memory is at 9-9-9-24 but I havent tried to oc much the memory. My latency in maxmem is in the 49ns range and 10.60s gb/s. I had it set in the cl7 range at 1600 and didn't work as fast. Cl6 wouldn't boot. I'm not super knowledgeable with timings so I currently stay conservative with it.

Most 1090/1100 users say 1.55v is 24/7 safe and some say they heard of people using 1.6v 24/7 but I want to keep mine at or under 1.5v. I'm happy with 4244mhz, not to mention gaming in the high 30c is perfect. Happy with my cooling.

Depends on what you're doing. Do you require 6 cores? IPC is the same on both. 1100T has a better IMC so if you need lots of memory you'll have a easier time overclocking. How long do you plan on keeping this rig? More games will utilize more cores eventually.

I would go for the x6 of course.

Isn't the stepping different from a 955 to a 980 though? I heard that's why a 980 is better.

The only real advantage I'm aware of that the 980 has is it will normally run cooler when OC'ed simply because it has less cores going.

If you think temps could be a problem, the 980 would be the better choice but remember, you can always disable cores with the 1100 and enable them if you need to at any time for the extra cores.

Both chips have a good IMC and can push RAM above 2000 no problem and my 1100 will do that with the right sticks and settings plus my 1100T can hit CPU-NB speeds exceeding 3500 with good cooling too - I'm sure the 980 can do this as well.

get the 1100T.

you said price wasn't an issue and it is clearly a better processor. It overclocks higher and the 2 extra cores may come in handy so why not?

OR disable the 2 cores and get a Thurban Quad with a really high OC.

this is a gud example of another bad thing happening these days on ocn.....n im surprised to see a highly repped member like u do it....

go through the thread again and see my first post in this thread i have clearly adviced op to get ph 2 x4 965....go first see whole thread and then jump to conclusios about others.......

I'd pick up a nice used 1090t from the FS section. But if buying new I'd go for the 980.
post #60 of 75
Follow these steps:

1. Get a 1090T/1100T.
2. Disable the 2 weakest cores.
3. OC the crap out of it since it's only 4 cores now.
4. If you run an app\\game that's well multi-threaded, you can always re-enable the other 2 cores. Can't do that if you buy a 980, you're stuck with 4.

And a Thuban will beat the hell out of a Deneb in true-multi-threaded apps since it's 6 vs 4 cores.
