not the cheapest combo available but I bundled the 960t with this msi board for my buddy and he loves it, was able to unlock to 6 cores and OC in the high 3's without a problem..board drops to $44.99 with bundle and comes with a $10 rebate...so about $39 for board after CA tax, board sells for $76 on Amazon
Because it has 2 more processors? Or because unlocked, you can overclock?
Not sure I use programs that can take advantage of multiple processors.
I got these responses:
The 1045T is essentially more processor for the money really, it will OC to 3.2-3.8 by bumping the FSB up to 240Mhz and leaving Turbo ON with stock volts. If you go this route, getting a 800 or 900 series mobo will probably pay dividends, as the 700 series do not have such flexible FSB speeds and do not have USB 3.0. Ideally this CPU would be the perfect fit on a 880G board.
This slight OC make the single thread performance waaay better than the 4100, and give you 6 real cores.
I can't believe the long legs my 1055T has had, lasting over 2 years and still being a true performer.
Great deal on a very decent CPU.
Any comments on the 960T vs the 4100? I heard that 960T cores can be unlocked...
Hell yes. The 4100 is a piece of shit as far as CPUs go. Sure, it runs moderately cool and overclocks fantastically - I've heard to 4.5GHz and beyond. The problem is that those are nothing but empty numbers. The performance of the FX Bulldozer architecture per core per clock is horrid and beaten out by even the Phenom II processors. The 4100 isn't even a real quad-core processor as it is more like two physical cores where their additional "virtual" cores have more independent resources than your average Hyper-Threaded Intel core. The 1045T is a pure, legitimate 6-core processor and when overclocked will smash the 4100 in just about everything. The 1045T is also a 95W processor so it runs relatively cool and has good overclocking overhead.
If you're NOT overclocking, then the decision is even more obvious as the 1045T is just a better processor in every way.
Finally, I still wouldn't choose the 1045T. I'd take the 960T instead because the chance of unlocking 2 extra cores on that CPU are incredibly high. In fact, you could say it's uncommon for you not to be able to unlock any extra cores on the 960T. It's stock clock is also 3.0GHz, which is 300MHz more than the 1045T at 2.7GHz. So essentially, you can have a 6-core cpu with an unlocked multiplier for you to play with. Right now, I'm using a 6-core 960T overlocked to 4.0GHz as my daily driver. That being said, there IS a chance of you getting stuck with four cores, so you have to be prepared for that.
