Choices on the CPU were either I7 Intel or I5 Extreme or 6 Core AMD. Prices told me to choose the AMD. Critics of AMD say more cores won’t make it faster, but if that is so, why have hyperthreading? If you have a 4 core with Hyperthreading, it is basically 8 cores, right? So if I can find a processor in the price range of a 6 core black edition 1090 (AMD) that is 4 core extreme (Intel), maybe I will choose that one. Let’s see what I can come up with.

Intel Core i7 3.4GHz $315 seems to be the best price right now, Amazon or Buy

AMD Phenom™ II X6 Processor

Intel Core i5 Hyperthreading

To get an i5 with 4 cores, your looking at a Lynnfield. That is the i5-7xx series (Lynnfield) and has no hyperthreading enabled, the same CPU with it enabled is sold as an i7-8xx. This is not the same as the very much wanted i7 which is an i7-9xx. So after hours of research I’m still looking at the AMD, if nothing else, out of sheer confusion. But I continue...

Yea, I’m not gonna bother documenting all the data, we chose the AMD 1090T Black Edition. Here it is with it’s stock cooling (quite nice for a stock system actually) and another carefully packed fancy decal...

A crumby picture, but you get the Idea

 

 

100_4384

 

100_4387

CPU and heatsink mounted

So far we clocked it up to 3.8 (very easily), but there didn’t seem to be any gain in what we are doing, so we set it back to stock settings.
