Is This Worth It?Need Some Insight

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok,I'm on a PII x4 965 BE clocked at 4.0
Bought a PII x4 960T(That unlocks to x6)
Is it worth updating my BIOS and put the PII x4 960T in my computer?
And if so,Anyone have any information on how these CPU's overclock while unlocked?
Enlighten me on this CPU,Please.

You use the rig for gaming?

I think you would be fine with the 4 cores.

your choice really

Well it surely clocks better.i mean the majority of them need less voltage than deneb and also their temps are better.but you wont see the gains you expect to see such as when you upgrade to a better cpu.
In case you need the 6 cores,then it surely be better.
For me it was not worth it pay for this change.But only by testing you will see for yourself how 960T overclocks and then tell.
