What exactly are you trying to achieve? Are you just tinkering or ?

I stopped buying computer hardware locally when I found out years ago I could buy it on the Internet cheaper and have it shipped to my door step.

I'm current building two new systems for my game crazy sons!

You know the new 3D stuff.

By reading reviews on the FX4100 I see some people able to OC that CPU from 4.5 to 5GHz range with a good PSU and cooling and I was thinking I could never come close to that with the CPU I have now lol

Ok let's change this and tell me what's better:

1) AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ955FBGMBOX.
2) AMD FX-4170 Zambezi 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Quad-Core Desktop Processor FD4170FRGUBOX

Would this CPU be better then the Phenom II X4 955 I have now? AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX

It would be about the same I believe according to what I read up in google, you be better off buying a Phenom II X6 1045T would be a better option in my opinion, here's a trusted supplier I know and also is based in Canada were you live so should be faster shipping then it would be to the u.s. So i linked it to the Canadian page and it would cost you 159.98 CAD and it's in stock

Interesting article. So, would these be the best processors for his application?

Old Type:
Amazon.com: AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Processor, Black Edition (HDE00ZFBGRBOX): Electronics

New Type:
http://www.amazon.com/AMD-FX-8150-Ed...dp_ob_title_ce

x6 core would be an upgrade to his x4 core. So, would run future multi-threaded software faster.

Since his Mobo supports 125w TDP. He would only need to buy a processor, and use the old heatsink and fan.

Here's a comment taken from the article Quickdraw supplied.


"The Thurban And Zosma cores posses a feature called "turbo core overclocking". This feature allows the CPU to run in two different modes, When an application does not require all of the cores to be enabled, half of the cores can be disabled while the remaining cores can be automatically overclocked by up to 500Mhz. When an Application then requires all cores to be enabled the CPU will revert to all cores being in use and return to the standard clock speed."

I just ordered this one AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX and I plan to put the AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition in my spare motherboard and build a spare computer with that CPU I hope this new 6 core is as fast as what people are saying on New Egg cause I ordered this one local and it cost me with tax just under $229
