Most of us running the 930 don't even use our 22 multi but run 21x.
920s at 19x.
Oh, I'm not saying I i would trade *MY* chip.
I'm saying I would like to have my 930 with the 23x unlocked..In a perfect world that is. If I had a low binner that did not OC worth a crap then I would do the swap.
I guess it's just another multi to play with, especially an odd numbered one. Would be nice to see what kind of OC I could get at 23x - The best 24 hr OC I can get at 22x w/ HT enabled is 3.96 GHz - I tried to get something in the low 4's, but could not get good stability on air, got too hot once I got over 4 GHz using 22x and on top of that I think it's pushing the IMC a little much on the 930. (1800 MHz on the memory @ 3.96)
DIdn't they do something in the later batches of the 930's and subsequent 950's to make it harder to OC over 4 without going mad on the voltage? I vauguely remember a discussion on here about that a little while back..?
