post #21 of 22
I thought bulldozer is not true quad core, i read somewhere it has 4 modulars and 2 cores in each..
I would go with AMD Phenom 960T

I have both 960t and 1055t The 960t runs all day at 4.0 ghz and pulls less watts 125 or so. Unlocking the 960t was not an option on either of my boards. The best I could get out of the 1055T is 3.5 ghz 6 cores and that is close to 140 watts, The 1055t will do this only on the old 790 gx DDR2 board that was originally matched with a 9550 BE . It cant get close that with a 3.2.GHz only MSI 890fxa-gd70 vs 3.6ghz on the asus m4a78-e The 960t does the same on either board. The 1055T is a lot harder to set overclock also. I have thought about a 4170 and would go for, if it used less power. I guess I was wrong. in chosing the 1045T. The 790gx is paired with a gtx 460 and runs off a antec neo 550. the msi board needs the 1000 watt pwr sup to run the 2 x 6770 oced to 870 and 1220. Dont do this without Vram coolers I popped one Vram chip on #3 6770 by over clocking with them. now artifact warning, working one minute and no video the next. Also beware that some 6770s have ddr3 Vram and wont crossfire. some games run better with GTX and run better with the crossfire. just case with gtx, mass effect with crossfire.. I think I will replace crossfire with a 7870 instead going for 8150 or a 965 or 4170.
