Cd Drive: n82e16827136177 I would like to know if I would be able to use a Phenom ii x4 965 BE or even a AMD Phenom II X6 1090T BE instead of the AMD Phenom II X4 955 BE, with my current setup. Thank you for your help!!

You can achieve the same clock with a minor overclock. As far as the x6, if its for gaming you wont see an improvement,only in threaded apps and multi tasking will you see an improvement Share Twoboxer a b à CPUs November 7, 2010 6:04:42 PM Presumably you are gaming, otherwise why the 2x6870s lol. The 1090t is NOT a gaming processor. Games do not use more than 2 or 3 cores, so more slower cores don't help. m 0 l Related resources Just a question about my ram motherboard and CPU and power supply - Forum Just a quick question about a PC Build - Forum Just a question about a cooler i want to get, about 1 month after i build my pc. - Forum 780Ti Build and Question about CPU Cooling - Forum New Build, Question about CPU - Forum Can't find your answer ?
