Is it worth it 930 to a 960 - Page 2

post #11 of 20
If you went to 4.45ghz on the 960 with a higher multi and lower base clock, it would be a little slower than your 930. You get more performance with the higher base clock. Not huge but a little. Keep that 930!! I have built a bunch of systems with 950's and they can't reach 4.4ghz very well. The 950 has a 23x which is good to use. The 960 has the 24x which you would be told not to use anyways as it's a even multi and everyone recommends using a odd multi. Don't bother.

Not an upgrade. A sidegrade at best. And as others have said it might not even oc as high as the 930 you have.

I ended up getting a great deal on a 970 so I am happy with that.

Actually the 960 has Multi of x25 I have it. Don't upgrade unless its free, your chip can overclock alot more then the 960 can. There's no benefit from 930 to 960 its the same chip just higher multiplier.

960 got a 24x when turbo is not engaged Which means you can use the 25x multiplier when turbo is enabled.

hopefully I can get a good price for my 930 since it is a good overclocker

Why are you dead set on spending more money for basically the same chip?

Nope, unless you know how well the 960 overclocks and can for sure sell the 930 for the same amount.
