AMD x4 965 or AMD X6 1100T or amd x4 955

Thats right.Which should i get?The price for 955 is 89 pounds,the 965 is 99 pounds and the x6 is 150 pounds.I can afford all of them but the expensiver one the more time it takes me to buy for my money.Is the 1100T worth than 965?The x6 has 1 MB L2 cache more and it has unlocked multipliers than the x4.Do i need them?What is unlocked multipliers ? And is a 1 MB L2 cache more than the x4 worth(The x4 has 6 L3 and 2 L2 cache) the x6 has 6 L3 and 2 L2.Finally can someone tell me if i have more cores it is faster?For example which is faster a x4 3,3GHz or x6 3,3GHz? :bounce:

Note the rig is for gaming

More about 1100t
  1. Same speed then the X6 is only faster if you are using all cores. A faster X4 has a better gaming performance than a slower X6 because most games are limited to how many cores they use.
  2. go for an i5 2500 rig instead.
  3. Just Other opinion ... Different option
    if you like 1100 use it for all purpose multitasking + game . You can safe your oc setting up to 10 in bios .
    - OC and disabled 2core , use 4core for game
    - Oc. And use all core for rendering or encoding
    Same as like me when game use 4core and while edit video use 6core .. Wow it's good
  4. My mobo doesnt supports intel thats why i am choosing AMD if u noticed

    Well yeah i think i get x6 but how u do that?How you save 2 of them? I dont think i will overclock if its not safe maybe on stock voltage.
  6. Alright guys lets see if i get i5 rig.I need help choosing the mobo.

    Heres the i5

    Choose me a mobo from overclockers

    www.overclockers.co.uk

    Can i upgrade also with it lets say to an i7?in the future
  7. Its a MSI GD65 AM3+ anyway i will get x6 and update to bulldozer later.


    (SOLVED)
  8. Then save a bit of cash and buy a 1090t

    With the cash saved off the 1100t, spend it on the below cooler, both of which i have and then OC your chip to 4ghz, thats right 6 cores of 4ghz goodness..mmmmmmmmmm

  9. i dont have any pc now i am on laptop and i already have ordered a ZALMAN 10X EXTREME COOLER.Still i may buy the 1090 T 0,1 GHz not a difference to 1100t
  10. What GPU(s) do you plan on using? Phenom II is known to bottleneck some high end dual-card setups.
  11. AMD MSI 6950 2GB TWIN FROZR POWERED EDITION WITH OC.And which amd is good and not bottlenecking?And i will use CF in the future
  12. Again buy the 1090t and OC it to 4.0ghz, = no more bottle kneck.
  13. Also do u suggest gettting an i5?But i dont know what mobo to choose

    the max stable for 1090 T is 3,8 i read.I dont want to damage my cpu
  15. Sorry, but thats rubbish, there is no across the board max stable for any overclockable CPU, as each CPU will have its own threshold, like i said i can reach 4.4ghz on mine running prime on small FFt test for 24 hours, but im not greedy so i run it at 4ghz, and have been now for 6 months without any kind of issue. Dont believe everything you read on the internet, there's no supplement for personal experience.
  16. i thought you already bought that zalman cooler, if not then you should buy this
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-000-BQ&groupid=701&catid=57&subcat=1395

    Its a far better cooler than the zalman and better than most if not all prefilled water cooling kits like the one you showed above. No i dont have skype sorry.
  17. so u have that be quitet cooler?How are the temps oced to 4GHz?
    i found it here http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=HS-000-BQ&tool=3

    ok i found the same too what are your temps with that cooler on 4GHz?
  19. Well my room temp = 22c

    My CPU @ idle temp = 26c
    My CPU @ load temp never exceeds = 54c

    This is housed in a Silverstone Fortress FT02, your PC case is also an important consideration for cooling your CPU as good case airflow is imperative.

    Heres my PC..



    Behold the beauty of that cooler, mmmmmmmmmm
  20. looks cool.The case i will order is antec one hundrend gaming.Here http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-161-AN

    Features
    1 x top special 140 mm TwoCool™ fan
    - 1 x rear 120 mm TwoCool™ fan
    - 2 x front 120 mm fans for HDDs (optional)
    - 1 x side 120 mm fan for graphics cards (optional)
  21. Looks beast and your for 4 GHz its awsome.Ur fan speed on 100 percent by the way?
  22. Antec 100 is a decent budget gaming case with good airflow, my fans peeds never exceed 70% even when gaming for 8 hours, they are all temperature controlled automatically.
  23. ok so mine will be auto too huh? I also need ur help to overclock my amd x6 1090t on the future.Do u think it can reach 4GHz stable like yours?First time overclocking.If i get BSOD i can get to the original settings again?
  24. also where do u see ur fan speed 10-70 % etc ?
  25. All my fans are controlled by my MB using its inbuilt BIOS software, i can see the fan speeds using a program in windows called Hardware Monitor, as for your CPU, nothing is certain, but i can almost guarantee you will defo reach at least 3.8ghz if not 4ghz.

    Once you have bought and built your system i will be only to happy to help you.
  26. Alright :) Maybe u should get skype so we can talk.Where u from?

    Nice case it has a big airflow on top two fans inside and one fan on the side.
  27. Manchester, UK.
  28. Ok so you make skype or you have MSN or anything?
  29. I have msn.
  30. name?id?
  31. also whats ur graphics card?
