The 960T is the best choice, you should be able to overclock it to at least 4GHz and you might be able to unlock the two disabled cores.

960T, it's cheaper and more powerful in general then that of the 6100 smile.gif even if you cannot get all six cores to function, can do 5 cores or just stickw ith quad core ethier way it'll still be faster smile.gif

960T, picked one up for $125 on the egg, unlocked 2 cores and currently running 4 Ghz, Plus the FX-6100 isn't really a 6 "core" but I won't get into that.

When you unlock the two extra cores it essentially becomes an X6 Black edition which means an unlocked multiplier is available which makes overclocking a ton easier plus even as a Quad core it has the Thubans memory controller which means DDR3 1600Mhz will be utilized. The chip itself can be undervolted quite well if you wish to save energy, I have seen people get this chip as low as 1.035v at stock clocks. The 960T also has been proven to run cooler than it's Thuban cousins. (1090T, 1100T, etc) My vote goes to this wonderful chip any day.

Please Read:
Not all chips are guaranteed to unlock any cores at all and all chips are not created equal, you will be taking a chance if you try to unlock this chip. Currently there is a rough estimation that 65%~75% of these chips unlock to stable six core operation but take this with a grain of salt and measure the pros and cons.

I have owned both and the 960t is a better performer!

I prefer this chip over all but the 8150!

Hey,
I was just about to ask the question, "960T vs. FX-4100?", but then I saw this thread!

Both 960T and FX-4100 are $99.99 at Micro Center, and I'm planning to buy the GA-78LMT-S2P which is $10 if purchased with 960T or FX-4100. I was planning to get the Pentium G620, but after an H67 motherboard it would be almost the same price.

This setup is going to be used for office tasks, including Quickbooks with an extremely large database, another database program, and multi-tasking (Office, web, but not much graphics manipulation, if at all). And NO gaming. I'm hoping for this setup to last at least 5 years; some in our office are still using LGA 775 and 2GB of DDR2. Do you all still recommend the 960T?
