I bought a FX-55 chip about 4 months from monarchcomputer.com. Ive been hearing about these san diego chips and Im unfamiliar with them.

How can I tell if my chip had a San Diego core?

way to answer the questions guys :p

NO! you don't have san diego. if you got it 4 months ago.. the revE cores were juset starting to be rumored about back then, so you definitly don't have one ;)

So, you're going to spend another $800 on another FX-55, even though you already have a Clawhammer, just to get the San Diego core?

some people have far too much money...

Just to reaffirm it...


And I am in fact employed.

And doesnt it just bake ya noodle that my £130 cpu doesnt lag too far behind your $800 one...

Had I been bothered to spunk another £70 on a 3700+ then it really start to sting.

Here's the problem...

ANY FX-55 is teh ownage. Why pay even close to what you paid for that one, buying something with minor performance upgrades compared.

Yeah, the Clawhammer 55 is nothing to scoff at. It is a great processor and is very capapble at that.. Don't replace it with a San Diego 55.. Just get a 57 if you do upgrade :cool:
