I think that IF it would be worth it enough to the OP, they would never have made this thread in the first place. Then you'd know it was worth it. Considering they made an actual thread asking about it, shows rather deep doubts and hence 9 times out of 10, it's not worth it. They know it deep down, just needed this thread and us in order to hit the head on the nail, to make them open their eyes and realize it.

I can absolutely vouch for this on this forum and especially to AlienALX, Dicehunter, AngryGoldfish, Warchild, WYP to name a few previously, I have made so many dumb and spotantious purchases that were completely unnecessary. Even though I did not see it as first, I did after you guys helped me open my eyes and see it.

Our fellow member said it well above:
Thank you for the this reply. Thats all I needed. I will not be purchasing it and I'm sticking to what I have. It could always be worse and I just need to be thankful that I got a decent chip from retail. Appreciate it a lot

No worries, glad someone could take advantage of my previous mistakes

I get you though, a golden chip seems like eye candy, but it’s not worth it from many aspects in your case: The CPU is old now, new CPUs are around the corner, you won’t gain much in terms of performance and it’s very loosely due to you ”might” get away with it if you sell stuff etc and hence it’s even more risky in that regard.

Lastly and most importantly - you already have one and it works. Why change something that has clearly served you well thus far.

What is saying that IF you would buy this new chip, it might cause you problems and might pop after some time.
