The 955 is definitely a Black Edition chip. The 955 is also a quad-core whereas the 720 is a triple-core. Almost all AMD chips will over-clock, From the Athlon 64 to the bulldozer. The 720 bundle is generally better spec in every area other than the chip. It's a shame you can't get the 720 bundle and put the 955 in it lol. Also neither bundle specifies the motherboard it uses, which is always annoying.
