joytech22 said: No not at all.I have come from a 955BE at 4GHz and experienced a massive improvement in FPS in most titles. 10-20%It was a big shock when I upgraded to SB on how fast in comparison it was compared to my Phenom.
joytech22 said: Well.. You don't "Have" to overclock to that speed, it depends since some AMD CPU's reach a wall around 3.9GHz.I would take it to 3.8GHz. Honestly I don't think you'll even notice a difference with the overclock. I had a much higher performance bottleneck because I was running GTX470's in SLI at the time.As long as games run well to you, I wouldn't worry about bottlenecks.
refillable said: No 955 BE is one of the nicest one from the Phenom series. And it's better than the bulldozer that prices the same (The FX4100). If you have 955 BE don't worry.And out of topic, why is the new Llano have 'K' in them? this is copying! I like BE better in my opinion.

monsta said: Ah poo, I thought it would be ok. I can get too optimistic at times
joytech22 said: It will work fine haha, just not at it's best. D:And don't worry I do that a lot lol.
jamie6737 said: I play the sims 3, lol so it will work fine for that? since thats all i play
joytech22 said: In that case it'll work absolutely fine!
