Done with AMD, going to Intel! - Page 12

Intel - Overpriced, Good luck

You know what is Funny is this I used to run a 955 black with a nice Mobo & I just recently switched to a Intel Build my sig. I paid 304.00 for this build & newegg @ even at stock 2.66ghz it was faster then my 955 @ 3.2ghz. I OC'ed my CPU to 3.2ghz from 2.66Ghz and no matter how you look at it this thing Rocks. I know I can go over 3.2ghz but most likely will have to change my memory out for something better.

I paid less for my FASTER Intel then I did for my AMD setup.

i'm sorry for this post. but if you do not know what you are doing in your bios, it's obvious you shouldn't be there; and its time for you to learn more. amd is the easiest overclock i've ever done. it sounds like your mobo is the problem; not the cpu. my suggestion is to upgrade to a motherboard that is overclock friendly.
dont blame amd for your inexperience please. amd is a great company with excellent cpus and a proven track record. motherboard are released on specs, and its up to the individual company to decide what is best in its interests.
in addition: while its generally accepted unlocking cpu's isn't a great idea. those cpu's were locked for a reason, mostly due to failure rate. by unlocking it you're voiding your warranty; but then again doing anything like sticking a non stock cooler on your cpu is voiding your warranty so...
whatever, but still, doing so is not without its risks; do some research.

i suggest you dont attempt to overclock untill you know what you are doing.
this isn't a troll; its sound advice from a tech.

Hang on, that sounds like an intel fanboy comment!

Joking aside, It's your money so spend it how you want! Dont let people sway you, Look at reviews/benchmarks and pick what is right for you.

PS - dont blame AMD for a failed OC/Unlock, Chips degrade over time + AMD never promised the unlock is successful - heck this is a thing people came across themselves!

If BullDozer doesn't deliver the second rig I plan on building will be Intel. I am already building and almost finished with a SandyBridge build.
post #116 of 127
if you had an ASUS CROSSHAIR, this wouldn't have happened

so YOU tried to unlock your CPU, YOU failed and cant get your PC to boot?
and your saying you are DONE with AMD? jeez. keep in mind that core unlocking isnt a FEATURE, its a BONUS. dont treat it like a feature and expect to get a quad core for free. the cores were LOCKED FOR A REASON! i just got lucky enough to have one good core.
you could have just bought another Phenom II X4 or X6 and wouldn't have to deal with buying a new mobo and reformatting and spending more money on something you caused :/
your blaming a whole company for something that the CPU wasnt really meant for.
whatever its your money.
how much did you pay for the i5 and 1156 mobo? if it was cheaper than buying a X6 then good for you! if not then you kinda ripped yourself off...

lol
oh i used to have that mobo! i found it IMPOSSIBLE to unlock cores on it if your 550 is only stable with 3 cores. it only unlocks ALL 4 CORES and obviously that made my PC not post.
core #0,1,and 4 works for me. core #3 is defective so...
you should try unlocking some time tho
