    What's the point of maintaining two black editions? :confused: If 955s are specimens that don't OC that well, than they're fairly pointless as BEs, and if they do it makes the more expensive model pointless.

    I didn't mean that, that's normal. I just thought that it would be logical for AMD to start locking the multiplier on the 955s as I'm not sure why would someone go for the more expensive 965BE if they can get an identical processor with unlocked multiplier for less.

    That's what Black Edition has meant so far with AMD. :)

    Yeah, I was asking what you meant as I seem to have read that you said the 955 should have unlocked multis? - they do....
