I believe it had several overheating issues and most modern CPUs are made for gaming or high performance

well they got rid of the hole i7-900 lineup. (expept the extreme once with is still sold today)
but if i remember correctly the 930 was the first one to go.
i think it had something to do with the difference from the 920 to the 940 in the performance to price ratio.
they made the 940 cheaper and killed the 930.
