Top clock rate for the i7 920

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Has anyone hit 5ghz stable on water yet with these procs? Will changing to sandy bridge allow me to clock higher because on the cooler idle temp?

On a side note any history buffs know who is featured in this painting? If so where can I find the original? I have a chance to get some much needed extra credit in my class.

LOL you won't hit 5ghz stable on one of them, maybe if you had some sort of phase unit possibly. Actually, even then, no you wouldn't. 5ghz on water even for suicide runs probably isn't even possible, since those chips scale with temperature.

As for your picture, no idea.

920s have hit 5Ghz on water, never seen one 24/7 stable that high though. Pretty much just validations & benchies.

On the XS 4.5GHz club the top 920 without HT on water was:

#8 zsamz_ | Core i7 920 [4C 4T] @ 4777.5MHz | 1.520 | ASUS Rampage II Extreme | Water | 3849B018

The highest even on phase didn't quite make 5GHz:

#1 zsamz_ | Core i7 920 [4C 4T] @ 4985.5MHz | 1.529 | EVGA Classified E760 | Phase | 3849B018

Bear in mind that's the top chip, more common on that list is around 4.5-4.6GHz under water

Ofc. Some people have even hit 5GHz on air with a SB.

Sandybridge chips (unlocked ones) can almost all hit 5ghz, stability isn't promised though. I've had a 2600k and my current 2500k and neither had any issue doing 5ghz, the 2600k took too much voltage for me though.
