Trust me it's a great platform. Just make sure you get 1600Mhz RAM.
Yea the 930's and 920's run at 2.8Ghz and 2.66Ghz respectively and the 930's can hit 4.3Ghz easier than the 920.
They replaced the 920 with the 930's now. I'd only go for a 920 if it was considerably cheaper than the 930 and I wasn't going to go for extreme OC's. Then i'd just up the BCLK of the 920 and run it at 3.2Ghz, which is easy and without vCore increases.
i7 920 £175
i7 930 £232.
Thats £57 difference!!! I'm with the 920. I'll spend the savings on a decent after-market cooler.
