That was me

OP if you don't mind the performance drop, if any at all depending on your uses, then go for it. The i7s just run way too hot for me. My 1055 is loading at my i7 idle temps, 1055 @ 3.8-1.36v / i7 @ 3.8-1.16v.There was a great combo deal at Frys so I went for it.
These 1055s actually bench pretty good (24230 @ 4.3). I was almost able to get a 4.4 3DMark06 run on air. Hopin for a 4.5 run when I get my water loop

Nah i quite happy with what I have, Its not worth it to me. Even if it has 2 more cores.It just a hassle in the long end to go without my comp for a week or so and using some atom netbook with a crappy gma950 64bit to play a mmo which it cant play. while I past the time.
