    New i7 930!

    I just upgraded from an XFX 780i with Q6600 and 4GB or ram, to an EVGA Classified 760 and 6GB of Corsair with a new i7 930 proc!






    now, what to do with it....

    I've ran some benches with the basic setup, no fancy cooling except the H50 with 2 unmatched pushpull fans and the best i can get stable (10 mins with LinX running at standard settings) is 4.3Ghz but that's slamming it with voltage. i can game with it @ 4.5Ghz but not much more than that. i'll realy have to tweak with it and spend a few hours getting it above 4.5 stable for a 24/7 OC. i guess i should be happy with 4.3Ghz on a 24/7 OC

    Also a cpuz if possible and a temp report would be nice.

    Test around 4ghz to be on the best side of things...

    the proc came in a box set with the same cooler as the 920. it ran me $288.99 and they had like 30 in stock. got some specs in my sig atm. im still kinda new @ overclocking, and i know jack about OCing the i7s on a brand of board ive never owned before.
    im not so sure im gonna be happy with this asus. it doesnt have all the bells and whistles i'll never use like a classy or ud7 ... and the ram, not dominator ; ; sooo... but im still stoked as to being one of the first to have a 930!

    i7 930 Testing

    I just picked up a 930 from fry's today after seeing all the posts on the web today. This is on:

    ASUS P6T Deluxe (v1)
    2x2GB G SKill ECO 1600 7 8 7 24 *running dual channel
    Corsair H50 Push-Pull
    ATI 5770
    Antec TruPower 550

    4200 (21x200)
    CPU vcore (BIOS) 1.3250
    DRAM 1.50
    QPI (VTT) 1.250
    PLL 1.8
    ICH PCIE 1.5
    IOH PCIE 1.5
    ICH 1.1
    IOH 1.1
    DRAM 1.50

    LLC auto
    HT on
    Speedstep on
    C1E on
    Turbo off

    Just got it but it ran thru 25 runs of LinX and running a few hours of Prime Blend so far at these settings. Temps are hitting 85 degrees celcius max

    Few things I noticed it has a 21x multi but turbo goes to 23x

    I'm using the corsair H50 which performed a few degrees better than my original Thermalright Ultra 120Extreme. I would try to go higher but this is about the farthest I want to go with these temps.

    lol it seems to run hotter than my i7 980X but then again i have not tried it with corsair H50

    One thing is true tough this is good enough to put pressure on i7 920 D0 prices, its not that great but price decrease on the i7 920 D0 woould be a very good thing....

    If the rest av 930s are like these 3001A117, then it could actually increase the price of good old 920 . These can't do anything to 920, but we can hopefully get some better 930-batches too, otherwise it would be too bad that they are replacing the 920.

    It seams Intel has learned some lessons from last rounds. A good OC headroom on these late batches of "cheap" CPU could ruin Intel's fun with the money you are spending on those 980x.

    So far they seem just Ok when compared to the 920. I hope someone gets a new stepping that shines but right now my 920 at 4510mhz at 1.4v is Prime stable and holding its own very well.

    From my knowledge its just the new version of the 920. intel will just replace it with the 930. obvious in the name. Just like a 1999 honda civic, the 2000 honda civic had no changes other than paint color options and fabric color options. The D16 engine in both those cars was identical.

    at least we can see a bump in stock performance with the 920-930s. 2.6Mhz - 2.8Mhz.

    its just this year's version. i never expected to see this processor perform leaps and bounds better than any 920. in fact, i know some 920s will OC better than some 930s. its just the luck of the draw. and those 930s that will be great CPUs are still stacked up neatly behind counters and locked up in security cages, are all waiting to be purchased and tested. give it a month.then we'll see.

    as far as my overall concern, the 920s could be good @ 4.2-4.5 on air, i expect the 930s to be capable of 4.4-4.7 on air.

    That's a fair call I suppose....the i7 930s are slowly appearing here in AUS (after a quick Google search)...i'm thinking overclockability-wise the 920s (D0s) and 930s will be more or less similar....I guess time will tell when more and more 930s are available and tested.

    It's not luck of the draw, intel just can't produce chips as good as they did in 2008 weeks 45 and 49. Why? I have no clue?

    Initial results seem quite bad. I was holding off on buying a X58 platform because the 930 was so close. Should have gone with the 920 a month ago :p Let's hope these are just some unlucky bad clockers, and on average it will clock better than 920

    If you don't do your homework, you will get a CPU based on "luck of the draw", but Intel doesn't manufacture CPU based on "luck of the draw". These guys do this for living and know exactly what they are getting out (with a small variations and within a predefined margin).

    This kind of big variations that we have seen in i7-batches, are most probably intentional based on marked analyses and such, basically based on how AMD is expecting to compete in near future, and other business-factors.
