i7 930 vs 3570k - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Yeah I had both as well, I found the rev 2 to be more stable. When Microcenter got the rev 2 I exchanged it and have been on it to this day. I could be totally wrong since a few years back I was not as good on the O/C. Look at it me now, I just squeezed another 300mhz out of my chip

I found both boards very similar for daily overclocks, the main difference was in high bclk 3d application. Up to about 210 bclk there really wasn't any issues, but at about 212 bclk or so the rev. 2 boards need to have slow mode enabled to be able to boot, but with slow mode enabled 3d applications run in slow motion.
The rev. 1 board could boot up to 240 bclk without slow mode enabled & run full speed 3d with no issues.

If not pushing high bclk for 3d it isn't an issue you would ever run into though.

It probably won't be an issue as I only intend to game anyways. Still awaiting seller's reply though.

For those in this thread that want to see how the I7-930 can O/C and keep up, I can direct you to the multi thread that Swolern came up with that I have abridged. If you need other benches let me know, but the I7-930 still seems to be a good chip that can keep up today with Titans:

Kan3, if you read my posting, it has my current settings for my 4.3GHZ O/C. When I first started I struggled at 3.99 but with a bigger PSU I can hit 4.3 Stable.

If your going to shell out $200 for a new 1366 board, I would sell that 930 and go for a 4670k and a new mobo. I've got a 4670k and a nice MSI mobo for $355 shipped, not trying to sell you something, but I would not spend more than $125 for a new 1366 board.

EDIT: Hell, I wouldn't even spend more than $100, I wouldn't spend more money on a mobo than what your CPU is worth.

If you don't mind missing an IO shield, you can pick up a Sabertooth x58 for around 110 bucks.

My friend ordered this motherboard from this website and it worked perfectly fine. He was able to get his 920 up to 3.8 Ghz before heat became an issue.

+1, not saying I agree 100% but it all boils down to what you want. Look at my benchmarks compare then to the 1440p and you should get an idea of what your performance can be. We don't always upgrade since we need to. A lot of it is since we are bored and impulsive. When you played your games were you happy? Were you lagging? I still feel the Largest improvements I have ever seen are:

1. PSU More is better for longevity
2. Case current lasted me over 10 years
3. Monitor You look at this invest in it.
4. SSD ---> I Was one of the last things I did. I wish it were the first
5. Mobo / CPU Only at this point if you are really slow otherwise it;s ram
6 GPU
7. Ram If you are under 6GB or at 6GB you start to feel it with Chrome and other browsers. I have held off on adding more than 6GB since I may be upgrading (I think or ram disk![/I]
8. HD / Case Fans / Fun stuff

I just tried to order there, but I found out they do not accept payments from non-USA paypal accounts (I'm from Europe).

Thanks for mentioning. I had already planned various upgrades, not sure about the order until now.

I spotted a 2nd hand ASUS P6T and MSI X58 Pro-E both for around 100 usd which is 'nearly new' according to the seller. Anyone heard of these mobos?
