what he said^

it does mak e working on your computer easier. you dont have this huge sharp metal thing sitting in the center of your case.

good call!!! you will be happy and they are no-maintenance coolers. there has been some discussion about whether to vent the cooler or to bring air from the outside into the cooler. i have mine setup in a vent setup and cannot complain. my temps are 38ish at idle and 73 under load but that is at 1.47 vcore and 4.8ghz OC so temps are great for what im pushin throught the chip

I was able to get my 920 D0 up to 4.0 (vcore 1.35V) on a silver arrow but I had to disable HT as it generates a lot of heat and still my temps were to high for my taste (around 78C) so I moved on to a custom wc loop with a 360 rad.

920 will go up to 3.6 on any decent air cooler but after that you will need to add more and more voltage and that means the heat load will grow quickly. As others have said you can get 4.0 on air if you are lucky but don't count on it.

Ouch you must have got one of the bad D0's Do you know the serial number of your chip?

my 920 hit 4.0 with no problems at all. using an h70 with stock fans, idles at 36-38C and rarely sees 60C during marathon gaming sessions.

I don't have it written down but I should be on the retail box right?

Edit: Are you interested in the Prod code or the Batch? It might be that this is a leaky chip or my PSU is not able to supply 100% stabile power.

The batch, should be 4 digits followed by A or B then 3 digits.

If you haven't done so fill out an entry here to help us identify the good/bad batches.
