The number in the name may be the same as the i7 965, but the performance is different. Check it out: http://www.overclock...s/phenomii_965/

The Phenom II X4 955 tied the X4 955 and...



Very nice review ajamatson!
Its cheaper than the i7 920 and performs pretty much the same as the i7 965 (in gaming)... :o I like it :D
But still i think the X4 955 is a better choice (if your on a budget).

There are many other reviews to look at here.

As for 955 vs. 965, I would grab the 965 anytime. It overclocks much better. I could run some benchmarks at up to 4.2GHz on air, which I could never have done with my 955. (Now do you believe me, IVI ?)

Overall, it will be my CPU of choice for Forum Wars! :D Let's see up to where I can get it under dry ice! :)

Yeah but I need the container to bring it back home. That's the problem. Maybe this fall when I get to University I will be able to borrow a dewar from the labs. That's my only hope for now.

Well the local company has free home delivery if u order atleast 25L... I have some big aluminum and stainless steel containers too. Don't have any use of them atm tho. If i get my Phenom II and a LN2 pot then i might try it.

So your sooo rich? I highly doubt it as I see you have Phenom II rig in ur sig. Dont u think saying cheap about a person is a bit offensive and rude?
Idk about Darkfuneral but i defiently do not hate i7 and i do admit that i can't afford it. So what about it?

You may want to consider that you lost something in translation.

Any ideas/predictions what the price will be when the i5 comes out? Does me no good just curious. Cost of being an early adopter.
