Well is not that bad... idle really doesn't mean much... what really matter its the max temps...

some people idle at 40c(when on 4ghz) and their max load temp reaches only 57c which is considered good enough... as long as you do not reach 60c hahaha you are good

Well, I think it's time to move on and to change my CPU.
So... I thought about buying either:

AMD Phenom II X4 970 (HDZ970FBGMBOX)
or ...

AMD Phenom™ II X6 1055 T (it's a comparison between two versions of 1055T and 970).

The price for 970 is almost the same as for 1055 T but the only problem is that (as I noticed) 1055 T (both 95 and 125 W versions) are not Black Edition :/

Which one would you suggest to me? My current chip is Ph II 945 and it's also non BE version (and additionally Rev. 2 :/ ).

Which one should I choose in your opinion?
Thubans seem to be quite good at OC and those very low temp (even under heavy loads).
Deneb is just Deneb (expanded version of 965 if I am not wrong?) but it should be quite a nice chip to OC too.

Any thougts, suggestions, comments ... anything? biggrin.gif

My brother picked up this motherboard a week ago for $60 brand new at Frys!! Put it together last night with a used Phenom II x3 720 we got from the forums along with 8gbs Mushkin DDR3 1600 c9 RAM. Currently working on overclocking the sucker. Had it stable at 3.3 ghz after a quick voltage bump.

I love this board.

if your gonna get a quad go with the 955 or 965. either will oc the same as the 970 imo. if you get a 1055t go with the 95w. if you get the x6 you'll need to upgrade your ram if your gonna oc the cpu. that 1066 is probably pushed to its limit already. get some 1600mhz cas6 or 7. if your just gaming you wont see a diff between the x4 and the x6 btw.

I got the 970 , the stock voltage is 1.4... A bit high IMHO... Currently I have it at stock clock but down volted to 1.325. it easily hit 4.0 at 1.45v (Unstable on the 4th core)... The 970's are very solid OC chips...

But a 1055 T is only sold with locked multiplier? or are there any BE?

Well, my memory it's not so bad, because it is 1600 MHz (I have even Oc'ed it to 1700 but couldn't set tighter timings).
Now it works with 3500 MHz with RAM speed 1333 MHz but with 6-6-6-18-24 1T latencies. I can get more but it requires much more voltage to stabilize it.

So, maybe I will decide to buy 955 C3 it's quite cheap and I think there won't be any problem to hit 4 GHz with it.

Hmmm, so ... those chips might be somekind of manufacture overclocked 965 chips or 955 ? Could it be? 1.4 V is quite high but their default clock is 3500 MHz. To get that score I have to set 1.38 V in BIOS.

It's a quite tough decision smile.gif
