If it's the same price as the x2 555, then yeah it's worth it.

$13USD higher then the 555 at frys and about $23USD higher on the egg. So is it worth checking out?

I'm sure it's just like the 955 vs 965 c3's comparisons. Get the cheapest one you can.

Myself would always get the higher clocked chip for more money hoping at a higher chance of a better binned cpu.

I bought them because I like checking out new stuff and plus I have the money to goof off with some new play toys.

Sounds like good enough reason to me. Let us know what you find!

I will post everything I can get from these 2 cpu. I overnight shipped them to try to get my new toys as quick as I can.
I have an extra ASUS M4A89TD PRO, Noctua NH-D14 and memory waiting for these cpu to test on.

Most of the 555 I tested I could unlock only one extra core. Like the one sitting on my desk. I unlock it to 3 core and at 4.0ghz.

Same here. I can get 3 cores unlocked but not 4. Then sometimes I have problems getting 3 unlocked if I go back to 2 cuz I have to unlock 4 first at least into BIOS then lock one to 3.

I glad that I can unlock any of the cores in the bios before I reboot. When I finish testing these cpu I may sell/trade one here, so keep an eye out for it.

The unlock on my 550 is weird. It can only unlock to 3 cores, but randomly changes between 3rd and 4th core being unlocked, which leads me to believe it should be a quad... Oh well, its sold now, back to my 1055t!

im going to be buying one of these alongside the 960 black edition. i decided a 100mhz higher clock is worth the $15 and change extra.

dixson01974 if you get it before i do please let us know how it works out for you. im hoping its a hell of alot better than my 550. i cant overclock past 3900 without geting bsod no matter how much voltage i push. 300x13 is as high as i have been able to get stable and thats pushing 1.375V
