Well I mean I think you should go for the 930 just bc of what cpu u own right now.... if u owned a 920 then no its not worth the upgrade... I am hearing 930s overclocking to 4.5+

For £20 extra... I would get the 920. The additional multiplier won't do much on a decent motherboard.

Having a 930 and difficulties getting it to 4GHz, I'd say go for the 920. It only took a day to get it working properly;however, you would probably go through less stress testing with the 920. I only got the 930 because I received a counterfeit 920, so I bought a 930 the day after getting the fake 920 and sent the 920 back.

seems like there's more bad batch's the 930 and less bad one's for the 920 mate.

People need to be satisfied with 4Ghz. After 4Ghz you're really not gaining THAT much from a processor except power consumption and heat
