why does he have to overclock to 4.0ghz right out the box. He could overclock it to 3.2 or 3.4 with stock heatsink.

Agreed, all I'm saying is $309 for a 930 and the Noctua is very nice deal and getting a 950 and then shelling out $50-$80 for a heatsink down the road won't yeild him any better results.

^^^^ Makes complete sense Robert.....I think way back when I paid around $80 for my TRUE, so that is a very good deal. Also, the comment about the I7 950 scoring higher in Vantage vs the 930 is complete nonsense when they're both OC'd to the same speed.

OP
You can purchase everything at NCIX and simply Price Match to the lowest price found (great all in one shopping).....also....

There a number of good deals floating around our BST Thread for used I7 gear...check it out!!!

For 4 Ghz you'll need a decent AHSF, certainly not stock!!

+1^^....you could probably find a better used mobo here then the Sabertooth (not knocking it, I'm just saying). I guess it depends on how you feel about used vs new and what budget you have to work with.

wait a sec, so when your buying a cpu for ex. the 930 and 950, the 950 cost more cause your paying for the higher clock speed?

^^^ Exactly. ...you're paying for higher Mult (CPU "stock" clock speeds).....they're the exact same CPU...one is clocked higher than the other at stock. If you OC both to the same speed they're identical..you'll likely find that regardless of the Multiplier they'll both OC just as well, bearing in mind not all CPU's are created equal.

Example: The older 920 DO Chips OC like the banshee with lower Core Voltage.....the OP maybe better off finding a well priced used "proven" 920 DO..........

i would never overclock with a stock fan, and i most def want to overclock to the 4ghz range

so yea, i went ahead and placed an order for the 930 combo.

I was thinking i5, but i really don't want to leave that upgrade path open, i really rather spend it now, than spend now, sell the parts then go to i7.
