Have people not taken 920's to 4.5GHZ? For about $700 less.

Ahh, but 920's don't fare as well as 975's for suicide runs

what ever the 920 can do, the 975 can do better.

920 will mostly out clock a 975 in normal OCing, but introduce DICE or LN2 then the 975 screams ahead.

wow really....... most boards stop at 222BCLK and that is around 4.6ghz, a 975 has an unlocked multi and can hit higher speeds at more volts with a higher multi and lower bclk. so do the math, and do research before you call someone out that benches i7s

Ya I cant see how that would be. 975 is everything a 920 is + more.

my 920 gets to 4.5ghz at a lower vcore then any 975 i have ever seen. its not until you get up higher is when it makes a difference.

May I see your 975 Benchmarks?

soo, i still don't get how a 920 would out clock a 975 in normal OCing.. what you just said proves that a 975 would clock higher

I've had both and the 975 is much better suited for extreme overclocking. PERIOD. If you've ever had perishable, extreme cooling sitting on your board you know you don't' have forever to dial in an overclock that will be required when running astronomical bclk. Hence why the higher multipliers are a better option.
Which will clock higher depends on the batch, and the iindividual chip, down to the individual mobo.
here is a link to a thread that has the highest clock ppl can get to and get a CPU-z validation. you see lots of 920's over 4.5ghz. but are they stable??? who knows but I would say for the most part the #'s you see people getting to are far from 24/7 and I would say far from 3dmark 05 stable. I punish my 965 with 1.42v for the CPU and QPI and have done so for close to a year at 4.4ghz with not even a blip. so you can spend your money the way you want but if you want to be at 4.5ghz with a 920 I suggest buying NcSpecV81's phase change system because that is the only way you might get close to 24/7 operation. IMO.

I think the point shane was tryin to make is you say a 920 would beat a 975, but if the 975 has unlocked multi, how could a 920 possibly beat it with a locked multi?
