  1. Yes
    The 4170 is just a 4100 with a higher stock clock.
    withgames that utilize the gpu well you wont.see it too much but ive personally had a 4100 clocked.to 4.5 which is higher than the 4170 and it bottlenecked my single 570

    ok what am3+ cpu would you reccomend i get?
  3. If I had to choose am3+ it would be either the 8150 ,or 8120. They are the better of the fx chips

    ok thank you

    Phenom II X4 965BE - 980BE are better quad chips than the FX-4100/70..

    yeah if you are wanting am3+ then the 81xx are the best of the fx.
    if you are wanting a quad the 965-980 are the better of the amd chips as urban stated above
  6. Oh, how I sold it then got a 980 be and it outperformed the fx at stock when the fx was at 4.5?
    Then I overcloxked the 980 to 4.2. for a single card setup the 980 is capable and cheaper than the 81xx and uses less power

    Did the 4100 seriously bottleneck a GTX 570 running at 4.5ghz!!?? If this is true OMG that SUCKS. What a weak A$$ cpu. How do you know it was a bottleneck?

    i'd personally try to find out aphenom 2 x6 1100t and overclock the hell out of it
    or
    throw my mobo in the bin and get a cheap pentium g620 :)

    how do i know it was a bottleneck?
    go research what bottleneck means then imagine the 4100 doing that to my 570.
    i really dont know why i would have to explain this....
