5600+ or 5000 Black box?/!


Recommended Posts

yea i just popped my 5600+ dual that i was using. Need a new processor fast and this is the newegg deal:

 

5000 Black Box 99.00 OR

 

5600+ 139.00

 

Differance is cache and speed. I can easily overcome the speed diff of 2.6 ghz (5000) vs. 2.8 (5600). I was runnin my current 5600 at 3.06 no problem. Of course i popped it so not sure on that. So that leaves the Cache difference. I love the idea i can easily overclock the 5000, and the price is awesome. Thoughts please i need to order before morning to get it here quickly.

Sorry to here about your 5600+. I was going to buy the 5000 BE but the smaller cache size and lower overclocks I have seen sent me to the 5600. The one I have came from Newegg and is running at 3470Ghz stable with watercooling. I hope you have better luck with your next proc. :lol:

Thanks everyone for the help. I ordered the 5000+ Black and am happy with it. Turned out it was a bad motherboard (new 790x from MSI) not a bad processor. On a side note: I stay with AMD for a multitude of reasons. While right now (and perhaps for a lil while to come) Intel has an admitted edge, I am greatly offended at their business practices. Not to mention they have always needed competition from AMD in order to keep their fires burning. Thanks anyway to the Intel enthusiasts.
