1055T Vs 960T

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Need to buy a CPU tomorrow and these are my only 2 choices, due to my MoBo spec and availability on Xmas eve!

£95 for the 960T or £116 for the 1055T

This is for my Media PC which is currently running a Phenom x4 9600 and can't handle some games, even with a GTX460 O/C

It's got an ASUS mobo with core unlocker, so I believe there's a chance I can unlock the 960 anyway?

How easy is the 1055 to O/C as it's not the black edition? I would of just bought a 1090 like I've got in my main rig, but they don't have any.

I've read a couple of similar posts on here and the 960 seems to be the way to go, and it's cheaper, and I may get 6 cores out of it. But surely the 1055 is a better starting point anyway? I'd be more than happy with 6x 4GHz but anywhere near that is also good.

Although it is my media PC so it's on 24x7 and I would rather it be stable and reliable than super fast.

I would spend the extra bit and get the 1055t personally. Unlocking cores is a crapshoot, no guarantee either way. It is a bit more involved to overclock though as its not unlocked. But it's certainly doable, usually around 4ghz with proper cooling.

Although the theory is that things aren't really using 6 cores anyway so some might consider it a waste. It depends on what you are doing with it ultimately.

well mainly watching TV and blurays, but I do need it to play the latest games. So I'm hoping the 6 cores will be fully utilised by the likes of CoD etc.

I was thinking the 1055 would be better but most other threads seem to say the 960 :/

Unlocking the cores should be easy enough and I dont mind getting my hands dirty, my gaming rig is pretty well overclocked and tweeked. But that's provided that all 6 cores on the 960 are viable.

My main worry is that the 1055 is NOT a black edition, what does tis mean? Is it just the multiplier thats not unlocked? How does this effect the over-clocking capabilities, or does it not?

get the 960T, 6 cores are hardly ever used in games these days. Make sure you OC the hell out of it though! thumb.gif

The 960T is all you need for now, the 1055T is just extra.

They will both O/C great, about 4Ghz give or take on the chip and board.

If you can afford it get the 1055T, but be sure to O/C, they are hopeless on stock speed's.

960T very very easily. It can oc higher. Seriously this is a brutally easy decision.
