My 920 does 4.2 at 1.28v, step up to a 950?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
The obvious answer is no but I wanted to get some of you into my thread I'm thinking about buying a 950 from MC and handing this one down to a relative.

What are most of you guys getting with your 950s on good air coolers? I'm on a H50 push/pull setup so I figure its equivalent to a high-end air setup.

Hoping for at least 4.2 but really want 4.4

HT doesn't matter to me

Cheers

Is 200MHz that big of a deal? 200mhz is my entire overclock and I'm happy with it.

Really you should OC your 920 until you hit at least 1.4v and see where that will get you...

Unless your board is having trouble going over a certain BCLk...

1.28 voltage isn't too bad for an i7. Try pushing to 4.4.

950 and 920 is essentially the same chip except the 950 is clocked higher when leaving the factory. Just oc your 920 more (as it seems it is capable)

If you get 4.2ghz with 1.28vcore.. You would have to be crazy to give that cpu away and buy a 950..

Id buy him the 950 and keep that 920 lol.
