1090tBE or 970BE

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
At the moment I'm on the fence with completing my build. I need some advice on choosing a chip to drop into this rig.

For starters I only plan on gaming and the occasional video encoding.
My question is, which one of these cpus would be the best to use for the time being?

if budget no bar then 1090t be
else if only gaming then a higher clocked x4 will suffice.....

Hi Silomatic,

+1 on the 1090 they OC better than the Deneb.
Silly maybe but make sure youe BIOS is a rev level that supports the 6 core. Don't know about he Crosshair, but other boards need a bios update for the 6 core.
Good luck and have fun.

Yeah, the Crosshair supports 6 core easily. But I prefer to get the 1055T personally as you can have more fun overclocking it

For gaming a quad core will work fine, but he is going to do video encoding then any x6 core will work better.

Thank you very much for the quick replies. So yeah, I would like to encode as well as game so from what I've read get the x6. So now I guess the question would be Is there really that big a difference in the 1055 and 1090?

1090t stock clock is higher and has unlocked multiplier so it's easier to OC

however u should be able to OC a 1055t just fine on a crosshair IV

the 1055t can also oc to 1090t levels...so no point spending more money on 1090t if u r going to overclock.......

Absolutely no reason not to get the hex core if its in your budget. They will both OC to about the same clocks, actually the Thuban may go a little higher, and you have to extra cores if needed in the future. Also if you really dont want the power and energy of the extra cores, you can always close them and run on 4 or 3 or whatever.
