  1. It doesn't matter that it was overclocked before. Unless you overclock it, it will run at its rated speed.
  2. ok so it is like a normal phenom ii x4 955 black edition then theres no changes to the speed more anything
  3. The CPU doesn't remember that it was overclocked. To overclock it on a new motherboard, you would have to make changes in the BIOS; otherwise it won't be overclocked.
  4. Ah ok good then i can finally i cAN FINISIH MY GAMING PC BUILD oh just wondering what do you think amd phenom ii x4 955 be or core i5 650 becuase i have both
  5. The 955 BE is faster. Since they are very different processors, you obviously have 2 motherboards, one socket AM3 and one LGA 1156.
  6. oh ok thanks for the informations about overclocking and the CPUs thanks
