well they are the same. only the 965 is on higher clocks at stock. and you can hit 3.8-4.0GHz easily using either of those two.

I would just grab the 955, saves a few dollars. My recommendation for the overclock, don't allow load temps to exceed 60C and don't go over 1.5V on the cpu. You'll probably reach 4.0Ghz but might have to settle for 3.8 or 3.9.

It will depend what cooler you get to how far you can overclock, with a good cooler (Hyper 212+ or better) you could get 3.8-4.2GHz.
