Default Re: Intel Core i7-3960X Sandy Bridge-E Processor Review

As long as my i7-920 will play at 4.2gigs ,I just don't see a reason to get a new CPU .I have ran it from day one at 4.2gig and have never had any problems.I don't see big enough gains to even think about it.Sure if you ran it at stock 2.66Gigs ,then there may be a reason .But a i7-920 running at 4.2Gigs ,there no point in it.I guess I got lucky with my CPU It will run at 4.5Gigs but then I have to up my voltage to 1.4v,but I just need 1.325v to run at 4.2 Gigs and I have a great heatsink so it never runs to hot.
