I hate the do you really need this posts, a.k.a I am jealous of what you just bought.

Yea I see a mix of answers. Some saying get the best lol, which is half of what I usually do, and I will most likely also buy bulldozer setup WHENEVER THE HELL ITS RELEASED. Some saying get a quad. I kinda like the idea of a quad, cuz in reality nothing I do will benefit from 6 cores. I don't have any apps that use 6 cores and the it won't overclock any higher than a quad but it'd still be nice. But I like BE also not just cuz its "easier" to overclock but because it allows for higher OC's sometimes. I have hit walls with FSB OC and the multi gave me some more wiggle room. So basically still undecided.

You probably won't get an I/O plate (or anything else for that matter).

We've got the same processor now, how far have you pushed your 740? I'm guessing the Crosshair will give you a little higher OC, but I know a 955 or 965 would definitely be a step up, and 6 cores will be a leap ahead. Personally I'm waiting to see if prices will drop in response to Sandy Bridge though before upgrading.

Yes I know, I've heard that (and said it) for like the past 6 mos. Tired of waiting and I'll still get a Bulldozer setup when it comes out.

Don't need anything else.

Unlocked I had it up to 3.8 if I remember correctly, not stable though, and as tri I have it at 3.6 stable. Not bad, but will be doing lots of benching soon and dry ice and phase, so want more great chips to push.

Nice, nice. I have mine at a tad under 3.8 stable unlocked. And if that's the case, then you should go 1090T, but wait for a few more days and see what happens in the market.

Get the 1055T, save a few bones and have fun overclocking and not just raise one multiplier to OC. Sorry if this is candid but I find BE chips for noobs and the not so interested in overclocking. Yes I did have a 720 "BE" but only for the chance to unlock and extra core and it worked all the way to 3.716 GHz.

Any who, more fun can be had with a locked multi CPU. Also it is more rewarding getting to the end also.
How much fun is it getting stuck with a CPU that wont go as high as you thought, why take the risk?
