Overclock the 1055T straight to 4200MHz with flying heavens!

No difference in performance between the two when oc to 4.0ghz.

however u should be able to OC a 1055t just fine on a crosshair IV
1090T has all the multipliers unlock(CPU, NB and HT).

1090T is easier to oc, because of the unlock multipliers.

but just for slight ease the op would have to pay a price premium which is not justified....

Indeed. But for a lower price. he could have the 1055T and clock it to 4.2GHz

i would say get the 1055t but the 95watt tdp model...consumes less power and remains cooler than the higher tdp model
and probably overclocks better too.....

If the OP don't mind a used 1090T. He can look in the sale section and can pick up a 1090T for about the same price as a 1055T.

Dont forget the 1075T.

1055 = 14x max multi

1075 = 15x max multi

Would be a little easier to OC on boards that have trouble getting the Ref Clock way up there.

Even my board chokes at 295, so I'm considering the 1075 myself.

Plus, it would be more likely to keep you in your chosen RAM strap. At 285 Ref Clock, I have to run my RAM @ 1500MHz, versus being able to run 1600MHz RAM with a 250 Ref Clock. Course, you could just buy better RAM, but then your spending more than you ever wanted to, considering Bulldozer on the horizon.

I thought about doing just that, but how reliable is a secondhand cpu? Hate to spend the 160 or so on a used cpu that could very well not even work as opposed to just shelling out the extra cash for a new one. Then again theres really no guarantee there either is there lol.

I'll admit I'm kinda a noob when it comes to this RAM thing. Not really sure what you mean here. I was under the impression that 1600 meant I'd be getting 1600 with the ability to adjust timings and what not. Perhaps getting it up to 2000.

And yes. I'd rather avoid spending too much more on this system. Not sure if I will be building another system when Bulldozer releases, but than again you never know.

If RAM is spec'd at 1600, that means the manufacturer says it will run at 1600. You can try to run it at any speed you want.

Thats fine if your RAM can actually go that fast. As you increase Ref Clock, you will increase RAM speed. If your RAM can handle it, your all good. If not, you have to lower the RAM divider to slow it down.

If your RAM can do 2GHz, great!

You'll be fine on the Crosshair, I know the Ref Clock will get way up there on that board. Get a 1055T and save the money.
