From the Manufacturer
The AMD Phenom II X6 1055T is an ideal processor for enthusiasts looking to maximize their PC performance without breaking the bank. With six cores and a blazing 2.8 GHz clock speed, the processor is designed to handle all of the latest and most demanding software. It also has a versatile AM2+/AM3 socket and is compatible with a wide range of motherboards. Loaded with performance-boosting technologies, the 1055T will take your PC experience to the next level.
AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Six-Core Processor
Six Powerful Processing Cores
With the Phenom II X6 series, AMD has made the power of six-core processing available to budget-conscious consumers. Engineers have combined six cores into a single processor, giving you enough processing muscle for even the most highly threaded applications. Each core is equipped with 512K L2 cache, and all six cores share 6MB L3 smart cache between them. AMD has also included an ultra-wide, 4000MT/s bandwidth--enough to support all six cores effectively.
For users, this means that you'll be able to run all the latest software without the slowdown you'd experience with an inferior processor. Your computer will be able to handle multiple programs at once, and high-definition media players and video editors will run smoothly and efficiently. You'll also be able to enjoy next-gen games without any frame-rate hiccups.
The 1055T also has a high overclocking ceiling, giving enthusiasts plenty of headroom to increase their chip's frequency. With a little tweaking, you can lift your processor's performance to even greater heights.
Turbo Core Optimizes Performance
The Phenom II X6 series also comes equipped with Turbo Core technology, which actively optimizes the chip's performance to match your workload. If three or less cores are in use, the processor will redirect voltage to the active cores and overclock them by up to 500 MHz. With Turbo Core activated, you'll be able to blaze through all applications--even ones that don't make use of multiple cores.
Cutting-Edge Technologies for Faster Processing
The Phenom II X6 also makes use of several other performance-boosting technologies, including:
- HyperTransport Bandwidth: Speeds up communication between the processor and memory, improving overall system performance.
- Integrated Memory Controller: Actively scales bandwidth uses to match your computing needs, dramatically reducing slowdown.
- 128-bit Floating-Point Unit (FPU): Allows processor to execute floating-point calculations with extreme speed.
Gaming without Slowdown
PC gaming continues to improve at a breakneck rate, with graphics, physics, and AI growing more realistic each year. But you'll need more than just a good graphics card to keep up with the latest games. For certain games that are heavily threaded, a slow CPU can quickly become a bottleneck for performance and can ruin your gaming experience.
Fortunately, the Phenom II X6 series has been specifically designed to handle CPU-intensive games. With its multiple cores, the processor can manage thousands of high-speed gaming calculations at once. The result is a smooth, immersive gaming experience, free of any stuttering or latency.
The Ultimate in Energy Efficiency and Cooling
AMD products are known for their stellar energy efficiency, and the Phenom II X6-1055T is no exception. The processor features AMD's proprietary PowerNow and CoolCare technology, which allow the processor to smartly regulate its own energy consumption. Having an energy-efficient computer doesn't just help keep costs down; it also generates less heat and helps your computer to run more quietly. It will even prolong your processor's life cycle, so you can enjoy it for years without having to worry about degradation.
The AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Six-Core Processor is backed by a three-year warranty.

I think one important thing to note for people who do overclock their processors is that this chip overclocks at least as well as the 4 core chips, so there really is no downside for gaming, etc... to pick 6 cores over 4. With Turbo Boost, this thing will run faster than the default clock on up to three cores, so if you have any games that only use one or two cores, you'll get great performance given the game's limitations.
After some careful tweaking, I now have my rig running rock stable at 3.8Ghz, with Turbo Boost set to run at 4.05 Ghz!
If you do plan on Overclocking, make sure to spring for a good cpu cooler. this is the one I settled on and even after running Prime 95 on all 6 cores in an 80F room, core temp stays below 60C!

I paired the processor with a great new motherboard, which has nice features, great stability and superb overclocking support:
ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 - AM3 - AMD 890GX - DDR3 - USB 3.0 SATA 6 Gb/s - ATX Motherboard
New Power Supply:
Corsair CMPSU-850TX 850-Watt TX Series 80 Plus
And of course, new ram (Running at 1600 Mhz):
Corsair XMS3 4 GB PC3-12800 1600Mhz Dual Channel DDR3 Memory Kit CMX4GX3M2A1600C9

The first thing I noticed in the BIOS were that the temperature changes from Phenom to Phenom II X6 were amazing. My old original Phenom 9850, whose series was known for being very hot-running, would idle at 37c reported in the BIOS. With the same heatsink and thermal compound used, the X6 idled around 22c at stock clocks. At stock settings I never saw it climb above 35c in an hour's worth of AMD Overdrive stress testing, or Everest Ultimate Stability Testing.
Overclocking is amazing as well. Going from a CPU that couldn't overclock 500MHz if its life depended on it, I was surprised when I went from the stock 2.8GHz to 3.64GHz with a bus bump to 260 and a volt bump to 1.35v. Just to see if I could, I overclocked it to 4GHz with 1.45 volts, and it was stable for an hour or two in AOD/Everest, and a 3DMark Vantage run, but I set it back to 3.64 since there's no need for the extra power. It still won't get to above 40c with normal usage.
Even though I'm a gamer, I didn't buy a six-core expecting improvements in games by adding two more cores, but it got rid of the CPU bottleneck in Bad Company 2. A lower-end CPU in a game like Bad Company 2, which eats through low-end quad cores like they're nothing, can often cause the CPU to climb to 90% use, which creates a bottleneck in the graphics card. If you've got a monitor (a Logitech G15 keyboard is an invaluable peripheral) showing usage of both, you can see that if the CPU is maxed out, the GPU will be sitting back picking its nose being used about 40%.Read more ›
This performance improve is very apparent once I upgraded from my quad core. Best of all, it works with my older motherboard and RAM. A bargain for little over $200.
