I understand that they are basically the same chip but i want to be sure , i get the best. 955 is 5 dollars less then the 965 while the 970 is the same price as the 965 . I am planning on buying a coolermaster hyper 212 plus
it's a good idea to oc the 955 with 212+.
getting the 970 will not worth. see the link only 5% is 970 better.http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/88?vs=186
