Futurelooks
24 August 2009
  • Summary: On that bombshell of a conclusion to the overclocking results, one has to wonder where to start with the overall summary of the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition CPU. I guess we should start with performance, since that's what people are most concerned with.
  • Pros: Currently the fastest AMD CPU to date, Good performance, Low price compared to competition, Unlocked, making overclocking attempts easier
  • Cons: Not a lot of overclocking headroom left, High TDP = Almost Too Hot to Overclock, Still chasing Phenom II X4 955 in value race
