Upgrading the x4 955 to x6 1055t

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, currently i have a 955 quad core cpu and i think it's pretty decent, especialy with a ssd, but 1 thing bothers me; the temps.. when i'm playing bf3 the cpu gets +-65°, normally this cpu's max temp is 62° so i think it will brake some day if i continue to heat up the cpu like this


So, i found a guy that wants to buy my cpu, and i searched the net and i found a 1055t. But.. is it worth it? I can buy it for 100€

I benched my system with the 1055t and it seems it's definitely faster, especially the Compression., that makes it interesting

(This computer = AMD 955), btw; i was thinking also about the fx-6100 but it seems it haves even worser performance than my current cpu

What would you do in my place?

Thx!

Don't upgrade just because of temperatures, get a new heat sink for temps (such as my CM hyper 212+, cheap and works well). And if I were going to upgrade at all from a 955 it wouldnt be to a 1055t, not much of an upgrade and definitely not for gaming.

I do have a Zalman CNPS10X heatsink but i did really everything to keep it cool but the thing still gets hot.

Maybe it's because my case cost me 20€? I do have fans for airflow, in and outtake, cablemanagement but the darn thing still gets hot..

i don't understand.. when i stresstest it with aida64 it reaches 61° max.. but when i play bf3 the thing goes up to 65°


it's frustrating.. i did everything; reseated cpu and heatsink but without any cooler temps


This is the inside of the case
