And there are half a dozen outlets or more just doing a quick Google Shopping where I could get the 920 for $30+ cheaper.

Selling the 920 for that much is also mad with SandyBridge coming next week. I doubt very much that many folks will buy a 920 at full retail when faster CPUs are unlocked to the public in 5-6 days.

Id personally take a 920 over 950's anyday. The D0 stepping chips were great and are great OC'ers.

I love how people praise the 920 but must be forgetting how there are lemon batches too! biggrin.gif

I had one that was absolute turd. over 1.4v for 4.2Ghz. my 950 was a better chip by a mile.

its not always bad or good just by what the label says

I like overclocking more than actually playing video games.
i7 930 5.3GHz!!!!!---->proof.gifQ6600 4.7GHz!!!!!---->proof.gif
E8500 5.8GHz!!!!!---->proof.gif
Core i5 660 ES 5.9GHz!!!!!---->proof.gif
