Yeah, there are a whole lot of people who seem gun shy about HTT overclocking. That is true overclocking in reality, and even though it takes more work, it certainly isn't going to hamper you if you have the right accompanying parts.

My 1055 has the same base clock as the 830, has the same locked multi, yet I can hit 4.0 on it quite easily.

OP: First's things first, your motherboard does support the CPU's in question: http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=A770DE
Though you may have to upgrade your BIOS.
Second, the ASrock 770de's are great budget boards for overclocking, I have the DDR3 version of the same board, and it has surprised me with it's overclocking potential. I got my 710x3 up to 3.7GHz stable (1.1GHz overclock) with some tweaking.
So, if your prepared to overclock by HTT, save yourself some dollars and go for the 830, you won't be disappointed .

For that price I would go for the 830 you can't go wrong. look on this chart and you will see how far the 840 was push 4GHZ

Thread Starter 
I love you guys (and gals).

Thanks for the constructive input (and i'm especially happy to hear the MB is compatible...seemed to me that it wasn't for some reason, I'd looked at http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=A770DE and must have just overlooked it. I love that ol' board).

Given the cheeeeeeepness, I think I can't pass up the 830. Thanks again for all your help! I shall report back on my final overclock for those who care.

I have a phenom 830 and I'm upgrading everything in my system. Would it be worth it to upgrade to another cpu like the 955 or a 1100t or maybe an intel i5 or something? How much of a preformance increase would I get
