X6 Thuban's still relevant? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Thread Starter 
I think I'll stick with the 1090T, £160 for a fantastic motherboard and the chip, that's basically the price of a new 2500k so I'm not exactly breaking the bank, I've been with Intel since forever so it'll be a nice change, and it'll be my first actual overclocking experience other than getting my E8200 to 3ghz before I started to fry my video card (don't ask, this board is beyond a joke).

get a 1055T. all thubans peak at 4-4.1ghz. if they're priced really close then get the 1090t (don't know how they're priced atm)

I don't know about "all". My 1055T upstairs won't clear 3.65gHz in Prime or F@H.

OP, you're not going to be disappointed coming from your C2D to an X6.

And if a 2500k is a bit outside of your price range, then forget about an 8150 as well.

I think there will be two camps--those who advocate for the highest performance, and those who advocate for the "this is still a huge upgrade even though it's not the highest performance." I'm in the latter group (perhaps due to my old e2180 and windows xp... ).

If you're concerned about the price, get the X6--sounds like you're more concerned about just getting more performance than you have, as opposed to beating nearly everything else that's available. It will cost a decent amount less and net you all the performance you probably need, likely for quite some time.

Keep in mind, though, that if you do go with the X6 and you think you might want to stick with AMD for future upgrades, no doubt piledriver and subsequent progressions probably won't be on the AM3+ socket, so you'd need to overhaul again. If you went intel...I think the next revision will still be on the same socket as current ones (though I'm not 100% sure).

I'm certain that whichever route you go, you'll be blown away by the performance, so in that case I would recommend just getting whichever option is the cheapest for you.

Aye, you pretty much hit the nail on the head, pretty much anything is better than my E8200 right now so I'll definitely appreciate the performance boost.

1090T is an excellent choice for what you do and can afford.

Ahem, there are plenty of Thubans at 4.2-4.3GHZ and I set at 4.5GHZ 24/7 at 1.476v under full load.
