I am so so close to running my Phenom II X4 940 @ 4.0 MHz . I can run it through 3dmark06 and on the web and even in CoD4 but thats when I loose it after playing for 30 min or more . The next time I take a day to test again I think I can get it 100% stable . Temps are no issue here just getting the right settings is where I am at right now . The new 965 I hope will over clock at least to 4.2 MHz and I would be more than happy with that result . Anything more would be a bonus for me if its what I think it will be . This is all based on good Liquid Cooling for me .

"PIB" is the retail box or Processor-In-a-Box
AMD Processor-In-a-Box
Three (3) Year Processor In A Box Limited Warranty

"Tray" is just a container that holds many chips.

When you buy a CPU as an OEM or "Tray" you just get the CPU. The CPU (pin side) usually sits on an anti-static pad inside a small plastic case. The actual trays differ, for CPUs it may have 25 CPU cases connected which you can break one off the tray.

Since OEM/Tray CPU parts do not include heatsink, box, manual, etc, etc they are usually cheaper, though some online vendors actually charge more for them which seems stupid, for years (from k5 to k7) all I bought was AMD OEM chips, they were always cheaper then the retail box!

Also the return policies and warranties on OEM/Tray parts differ and from vendor to vendor. OEM parts are usually covered only by the vendor and not by AMD, so for example if you buy a OEM chip from Newegg or a Dell PC and the CPU dies you talk to Newegg/Dell for a replacement, not AMD.

It's $279 in Canada so I'm guessing around $250 in the USA?

Hmm after those reviews I would probably just go with the 955. But since the 965 is going to be a gift, why would I refuse it......

I agree that 955 - or even 940 - is a better choice. If a 965 at 3.4ghz performs > 5% better than a 955/940 overclocked to 3.4ghz, I would think it's justifiable to go with 965 rather than to stick with 955.

I'm guessing that if you use an identical cooler on a 955 vs. a 965, you will get a slightly higher max OC on the 965. Maybe 200MHz...? That could be another benefit of going with the 965.

Im still not sure if im going to go with liquid or air cooling. I am curious to see how far it could go on water. But like the reviews, still probably nothing stable after 3.9 ghz. Wont know till I get it....

Thanks for replying, everyone. It appears we have a decent cross-section of people here and a lot of well thought-out discussion.
