if mailman was my dad it would better explain my behavior but sadly hes not... mines a drunken bum who likes to say things along the lines of "get off my lawn" followed by colorful language we all enjoy... or complain when hung over... mailman would be a much better dad i could laugh as he gets hit with bansticks all the time that would be awesome...

i must be getting more popular as well everyones quoting the same post from me lol :D



wait on second thought mailman would be a horrible father hed steal 1 of my 5850s and say i didnt deserve it cause i was acting like an ass and thats his job not mine :roll:

It's not an engineering sample. That is a legitimate 960T OEM CPU.
What does that mean exactly?

And since it's legal now, what's it worth?

I have no idea... I need to research it further. You figure though, a new 965BE goes for about $170 bucks.

But is the 965BE theban based with 2 locked cores?

From what I read"

"With all 6 cores running, the 960T is recognized by BIOS as "Phenom II X6 1605T"

well in terms of what you would pay the 960T wouldnt be much better then a 965 a 960T will oc further etc etc but at stock and at 4 cores new it would probably be close to the 965be in price that said yours is bare cpu only and has had a couple users new its worth probably as erocker posted above $170 to sell it now you might actually get that since theres a few ppl who want one lol but in terms of used sales id say $120 ish for the most part maybe a bit more but right now you have the only one so who knows someone might pay a good price for it

From what I understand, it was never used.

Also, can't it be unlocked to 6 cores, making it more valuable as an X6 1605T?

It's not certain. Some can, some cannot. It's possible the extra two cores are defective or disabled.

^ exactly and besides with Bing cashback and deals on different sites you can get a 1055T for around $180 and if really lucky you can sometimes score 1035T OEM 6 cores for even less on ebay etc pulled from OEM rigs

Keep it. Will not be a common cpu, and the Turbo function, in a proper board, will be quite useful. I'd have fun with it. ;)

Definitely keep it, an Athlon II X4 is nothing special.

The 890FX is well worth the extra $14 bucks!
It's $30 more! Which is a lot when you factor in shipping (now $40 more)

OK I will. Turbo ads what? 50% or something?

How can I tell what boards would utilize the turbo?

Looking at these 2 boards right now


http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0334891

Open Box: ASUS M4A89TD PRO AM3 AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/...
You want a board with a good Thuban bios. I am not playing with Thuban yet, so I have no idea what is best at the moment...I've been very patiently waiting for ASUS Crosshair 4 Extreme before using my own Thuban. Lots of others here have 'em though, so bet to look at what they say.

Not sure what turbo-speed is...i think it's 3.0 stock, and 3.4 Turbo(as is marked in green sharpie on your cpu). This is quite a bit slower than 965BE, but power consumption is much better..should be around 80w or so stock(95w max).

The microcenter board (open box just like newegg) is only $104.00 with maybe $10 tax = $114.00 out the door.

That's not too bad.. Both boards have Thuban bios's so either will work. If you want less expensive, go for it. :)
