I'm guessing not, but has anyone had experience with the 930? There aren't too many threads on it, and the ones I read at both hit and miss.

What do you guys think? I'm just itching to buy something this weekend.
I heard somebody say they are higher binned or something. I however have no experience with them whatsoever so I have no clue if this is true or not. Just throwing it out there.

Hmm,

I'm reading that some of these guys who are buying 930's from Frys are returning/repurchasing until they get something decent. I'm not really looking to do that at all, since I won't even have all the parts for this 2nd machine, so I'd have to rip apart my current machine and use it as a test bed for the 930.

If I could pick up another 920 with same characteristics as mine, I'd be all over that. I was also looking at a W3520, but this would have to be purchased at NewEgg for like $310!

I've seen mixed thoughts on the 930's. They are higher binned, so in most cases they will OC the same or slightly more then the 920's. But I can't see the price difference being worth that little extra OC.
If you have a FRY's by you, see if they'll let you pick out he 920. Look for a B batch, and you should be good. Even some of the later A batchs are great clockers.

I have so many Fry's over here. Probably about 4 in short driving distances. So 930 B batches should be ok? You said 920 in your post, but I'm guessing thats a typo

I mean to be honest I just typed off what box listed on the front in what seemed like a logical order, which was 3 Way SLI so I figured put 2 and 2 together and that was 3x sli, reguardless the board features it but yeah I see your point.

Actually I did mean to say 920.
IMO I don't think the extra price of the 930 over the 920 is worth the little, if any, extra OC you'll get out of it.
I suggested just getting another 920, and looking for a good batch.

As far as the 930's go, I've seen many people say they OC about the same as the 920's, just lower voltages. I think if you want more OC headroom, it's time to step up a level in motherboards and cooling. I think the money would be better spent then..
Again, just my 2 cents.

The fact that there is hardly any price difference makes it tough.

$200 for i7 920
$350 for i7 930 and MSI PRO-E mobo

In the end, I'd probably end up coupling the 920 on another EVGA board, so I would be $400+ for that setup. I just want to be at 4.0 - 4.2 on fairly low voltages. Not looking for a crazy chip here.

This next build won't be with a Dark Knight though. I've been researching a water setup.

I guess that is a decent price. Didn't think about the Mobo that came with them. Which if anything I guess you could turn around and sell it off, then get something different.
Man I'm just not use to those nice in store specials.. We have nothing like that around me.

Hahaha, well let me know if I can pick anything up for you + shipping! I guess it's the benefits of being in the middle of it.

Gah, I have no idea what I want to do now. Found out Micro Center has the 930 for $250, so that just throws another variable in it.

You can finally add me. I got my stable overclock.

I had linx running for 4 hours as well as prime and IBT all day.

Did a quick 20 run test of linx to take a picture of it.
