3930K GAMING

Hi,

How well would 3930K game @ 4.2 Ghz? - Pairing it with GTX1070 or greater and AMD RX580 or Vega 56/64 @ 1080

I know it's an older chip - Ii wouldn't want to clock higher than 4.2 Ghz to keep temps in the 60's.

my old, now backup system is almost identical, except i moved up to 4930k.

It easily handles 1440p @ 60FPS in most titles still.

my girl uses it & all her MMOs auto-adjust to 4K w/ pretty decent frame rates (4K monitor)

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

using an i7 920 at 4.4ghz with a 1080ti and get over 100 at 1440p on pretty much any game.

Is it common for an i7 920 to get to 4.4 Ghz.? Or do you have a silicon lottery winner?

This is really good! - Seriously?

Does this mean an FX8350 could do this on say 1080P? - I've got one or two along with some Intel. Intel wins I know but could this work?

Depends on game, resolution/quality settings, and target frame rate.

If you are looking at something like 1440p60, the GPU is going to be the limiting factor, more often than not.

If you are looking for 1080p144, the opposite will be true.

4.4 is on the high side for a 920, but 4.2-4.3GHz out of the D0 stepping was common enough.

it really depends what you call common. it all depends how much voltage you want to burn it with.. my chip is fairly good. when it was new in 2008 i was able to hit 4.6ghz at 1.52v but ran it at 4.4 most of its life at 1.43v which is pretty high. the good thing is that they cost like 20 bucks on ebay so i have no fear of damaging it but it just keeps going. 4ghz is pretty prettymuch a guaranteed though on any 920 with a decent motherboard. i think im going to finally retire the poor thing when ryzen 2 comes out in a few months.

You're ok. Up until last year, I was rocking a 3960x and 4x R9 290x video cards, and at 1600P it was fine, except for a few exceptions.

CPU: Intel i7 9900KF -- GPU: 2x Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti Founder's Edition -- Motherboard: Asus ROG Maximum XI Hero Wifi -- RAM: 64 GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance RGB -- SSD: Samsung 970 EVO 500GB M.2 -- HD: WD 4TB Blue -- Power Supply: Corsair HX1200 -- Case: Thermaltake Tower 900 -- OS: Windows 10 Pro -- Monitor: Asus ROG SWift PG27UQ 4k 144hz -- Keyboard: Steelseries Apex Pro -- Mouse: Steelseries Rival 710

OK, thought I'd bring the 3930 K thread back to ask about the differences in 3930 K & 4930 K pertaining my OC with the 3930 K.

I forget the v_core I used but I reached 4.2 Ghz on 3930 K @ 66 C hottest core - I've got a 4930 K that came with another used motherboard - and I know IVY is 22 nm compared with 32 nm for 3930 K.

Would 4930 K be able to clock to 4.4 Ghz for the same temps as my 3930 K OC? - I'll find out when I do the OC but it's good to know what other think? - So IVY is more efficient than SANDY but what difference would it make when put to the test? - 100 Mhz or more? for the OC at the same temps?
