I think the 1055T's are a damn good deal because they clock just as well as the 1090be.
No unlocked multi's, but hey! Has that ever stoppped anyone before? On a good board!

for sure on air, the BE might be able to go a bit higher buts its neglagible. for an extreme water loop or nitrogen, ill definitely take BE.

Overclocking the X6 is easy, but doing it across four different motherboard adds another element of difficulty

The article will out in a couple of days, sorry for the delay.
Awesome. I look forward to it

I was thinking of upgrading my Q6600 to a 1055T, mainly because of folding. Since I already have 8 GB of 1066 RAM, I was thinking of maybe using an AM2+ board until I upgrade to AM3 (or next socket). What's the general thought on this?

clock for clock the intel wil ldeliver better ppd than the amd, altough in the end with the number of cores oc'ed to...3. something you should be good...

i say stick with your quad for now, maybe wait for 95 watt versions

Not the same thing. multi vrs "normal ocing" would be increasing the FSB (or htt IIRC on AMD systems) to get to the same CPU clock. What I'm talking about is increasing the multi for the actual NB in order to get a higher NB clock.

I've found getting it up around 2800+ decreases post time, and seems to make the OS feel "snappier".

The article has stagnated since there really isn't that much to talk about. There isn't much difference between the chipsets, and the differences are mostly attributable to the maturity of the BIOS and the quality of the motherboard.

The article will go up eventually, but in the mean time here are the results. I wasn't looking to break records, just seeing if there was any difference between the chipsets at 24/7-type overclocks. Voltage = 1.45vCore/1.30vNB/1.68vDimm.

Motherboards used:
ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO (785G Chipset)
ASUS M4A78T-E (790GX Chipset)
ASUS M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 (890GX Chipset)
GIGABYTE 890FXA-UD7 (890FX Chipset)

Highest Stable CPU Frequency

Highest Stable BUS Frequency [Temporary]

I haven't yet uploaded the new screenshots, but all the chipsets can hit 340-341 except for the 890FX which stopped at 324. This is an early BIOS issue not a chipset difference.

Interesting. The ASUS M4A78T-E seems to be the worst overclocker of them all. However it costs almost $20 more than ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO. It seems that the M4A785TD-V EVO would be the better buy between the two.
