Well, you do remember that before the 965 came out.... The 955 was the AMD AM3 Flagship....
So, maybe they are reverting back.... Being that they are both C3 revisions and the 965 C3 was released before the 955 (IIRC), they most likely will be keeping the 965 C3 as is.....
Maybe the 955 will become the new flag ship, performance wise. Whos knows.
Technically, AMD really need to start working on the Stage Processes of their processors to catch up to Intel. No offense and don't call me a trader...
AMD is focusing on bang for your buck at the moment. it seems that they are getting better though with the performance. At elast overclocking wise.
Even though Intel can run higher Memory in three channel mode, intellituby users (lol) are still claiming that lower speed with tighter timings is the way to go. Lower as in 1600-1700. being that some are clocking Intel ram at speeds of 2400Mhz...

Any advice on a stable timings setup?
If you can run 1600 @ CL6-6-6-18-24-1T with as high of a CPU-NB frequqency as possible, you will be better off. JMO though!
