The whole point of the multiplier unlocked fx-55 chip is for overclocking. If you arent going to do so, its 700$ price tag isnt worth it at all. Especially considering that the fx-55s are using the clawhammer core and only run at 2.6 by default.

Yeah, low latency RAM is only worth the extra cash if you plan on overclocking it, or unless you're one of those people who absolutely needs everything to be the best.

I preordered my 3200+ Venice from ncix.com early cause I couldn't wait any longer to build a new system and I am desperate to try out the watercooling scene, plus there is speculation that the next batches of the Venice will lose their overclocking potential, much like the Winnie did, and I don't want that to happen.
