Hello,

How much ghz would i be able to get out of my i7 920?
I have not yet installed the H70 because im missing some screws.

My guess is that you will be able to hit a typical overclock for an i7-920 - probably around 4.0ghz. I don't think it was heat related issues that prevented most people from going farther it was the motherboard unwillingness to run ram significantly over spec or QPI link speed since most motherboards only offer like 2 settings to adjust QPI speed.
