Hello. Today I wanted to ask the question of whether the fx 4100 or the phenom ii x4 was better. I already have both in black edition, but I am unsure of which to use. I will be gaming on this computer I am building. This will be overclocked slightly with the stock cooler. The CPU will be used in conjunction with a sapphire vapor-x 7950. This is temporary, as I will upgrade to an i5 2500k with liquid cooling later. Thank you in advance. Btw I am not sure which phenom x4 I have. Just know I have one. I hope to be able to oc to 3.6 on the stock cooler.
If the phenom II is a black addition I would use it and overclock it. I'm getting much better results with the phenom II. Even if its not overclockable I think I would still use it. I just built a system with a 4170 and I think its crap compared to my phenom II x4 955 BE. Just my opinion.
