Amd 4170 Zembezi cpu 4.3 ghz, is it good for gaming?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hello guys its been a few weeks since i posted and i stumbled upon this little gem so iam curious who has 1 and how far they have been able to clock them? I relize there are better options out there but iam interested in this perticular cpu so i would like to get feedback as far as games go and how it overclocks....Based on the specs it says its 125 w running at 4.3 ghz max,can it hit 5ghz on air or water is what iam really interested in! If i upgrade to this from my fx 6100 will i see any benafits as far as games are conserned? Thank you thumb.gif

4170 is know to oc around 4.7-5.0ghz. 4170 is ok for gaming, but there are gaming that can use 6 cores, so I would get a 6300.
Why go with a 6100? 6300 is way better.

No, he has a 6100. Wants to know if it is worth it to purchase a 4170 and overclock it.

Oh ok. So no it is not worth it and you will lose preformance. I would get a 6300/8320/8350 if you want more performance. 6300 would be better sence games can only use 6 core max.

I understand that.... what I don't understand is why he wants a BD over a PD.
