"If you want a processor and don't want to splurge on one of the higher end, and vastly pricier, processors then the 930 is wholeheartedly recommended. It's tough to recommend if you've got a D0 920, but for those early adopters who have a C-stepping 920 you seriously need to consider mo
"Clocking up to 4GHz with minor voltage adjustments and a few tweaks in the BIOS, the Core i7 930 becomes a superlative-inducing CPU and easily faster than any stock-clocked desktop processor shipping today. But the same can be said for current D0-stepping '920s, as well, so we'd only recomm
What really sells us on the idea of the i7-930 though is it's improved overclocking potential.
Any CPU, let alone one with four physical cores, four logical cores and triple-channel memory, that can run at 4.3GHz with a standard air-cooler is great news.

I am very satisified with my x58 setup and my 930 has been a superb little cpu. She's handled everything I've thrown at her, and has a very stable, cool OC at 3.8 ghz with 1.16 on the vcore. If you can get a good deal on one, I would highly recommend.
This is an excellent processor, i built a new system for my friend a while back, and on a average motherboard, we took it to over 4Ghz. Themps are reasonable with good cooling and its a great performer.
after a year its still running a nice high 4032mhz without flinching.
A great processor. Got it for $290 here on NCIX. I based my new build around this processor, and runs like a dream. Paired with 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, its pretty much the best thing ever. Very easy to overclock, you will need to get a better heat sink or cooling method in order to do so. Oh yea, hyper-threading is awesome.
If you have a lot of budget, and if you're looking for the top of the line from intel (the x58 platform) you can't go wrong with this cpu, it overclocks like a champ too, with the right cooler. I paired this with 12gb ocz ddr3 ram and a sabertooth, no complaints so far, no bios flash needed.
I am very impressed with this processor, as it is very fast and I have yet to use all of its power when I'm gaming. Recommended for anyone who wants a good processor. It is also very good for overclocking, which can be easily overclocked to 3.5+ghz.
Very good CPU for the price, once you overclock it pass 3.6Ghz, you can feel the thing kicking in when you render stuff. It really does save 2-3 days of rendering. In terms of how the binning goes, the last batch of 920s were better binned in general. My i7 930 can get up to 80C at 100% load with an overclock of 4.0Ghz on a Noctua U12-P SE2. It's probably my fans though. I plan on getting watercooling in the future, for now it will have to do.
