Good morning all. I'm looking at getting the Intel Core i7 920 Nehalem 2.66GHz LGA 1366 130W Quad-Core Processor Model BX80601920 and was wondering if it's necessary that I get the 3.0 GHz or if it didn't really matter anymore. Thanks in advance. Ryan

i7 920 user here.

Mine is air cooled Monsoon Vigor III, 3.8Ghz with NO voltage mods, north of 4.2Ghz with voltage boost. Its the old chip to not D0. Those i7's are totally unbeatable no matter how much you pimp your AMD it can't hang. I mated mine with with a pair 295GTX's and 12GB (upgraded since I made my sig) of dominator memory. Sorry AMD, you don't have anything that comes close to that on air.

You don't need the higher priced model unless you go for the unlocked extreme version otherwise not worth the cost because the 920 delivers tons of performance as is.
