So I'm on a budget and I want one of the AMD six-cores, and I am not sure how much harder it would be to overclock a 1055T vs. the 1090T. I am watercooling the CPU so it'd be a little bit of a waist not to overclock. From what I've heard it is harder to overclock processors that don't have an unlocked multiplier, because of the memory? I have DDR3 PC3-10666 1333Mhz 9-9-9-24 so I'm not sure about that but, I will be upgraded memory shortly after I upgrade my CPU. So Black Edition or not? Thanks.
My goal is atleast 3.8Ghz maybe a tiny bit slower... That'd be a full 1Ghz faster if I use the 1055T. Whats the difference between the two when overclocking?
Basicaly as i see it, no one has yet answered your question, so i will, buy the 1090t as its alot easier to overclock because of its unlocked multiplier, i have one and have a very cool and stable OC of 4ghz on a Titan Fenrir air cooler.

If you don't mind me asking what type of water cooling setup do you have?
I have had my 1055t to 4.6ghz on air, Toasty mind you and not stable but able to boot to windows
Running default at 3.8 now as extensive benchmarking show little improvement over 3.8ghz for power used and heat generated!
I have my 1090t @ 4ghz and when running it underload or on games like Crysis 2 its Core temps never rise above 45C, i reckon ive ended up with a very good example from AMD.
