    Not sure, soon hopefully - I Reccomend steering away from the 930 at the moment, as people are finding them the least succesfull, it's said they're speedbinned 940's.

    Sofar some results have been..


    940 @ 4.4 Stable (water)
    920 @ 4.1 Stable (Air)

    These are just a few.. both were on 955x boards.

    955x boards work fine as it seems so no need for 975 ;)

    where can i get a 920 from?

    So, Intel Pentium 4 930 Dual Core LGA775 Presler 3.0GHz (800FSB)
    or
    AMD Opteron 165 dual core.

    same price

    Would like to see some comparisons.

    I thought the Preslers were being manufactured using the 65nm process?

    Wait for Intel to update the Presler in Q2/06. Steppings of Intel Pentium D 900-series processors do not support enhanced Halt state (C1E), a capability that allows operating system to halt the processor when it is not needed, Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology (EIST), a feature that dynamically reduces clock-speed by 200MHz increments when the load is not high, and Thermal Monitoring 2 (TM2), a technology that reduces processor’s voltage to minimum and clock-speed to 2.80GHz in order to keep the chip cool enough in conditions when the processor becomes too hot.

    Hmm, these might actyually be worth considering. I hope they are good overclockers and they dont turn out to be just a good batch.
