Intel Core i7-930 2.8GHz LGA 1366 Quad-Core Desktop Processor
Very Good
Below Average
Rating: 9.51/10

Review Date: 02/07/11
Cons: a little expensive

Pros: great overclocker, fast,
handles anything and everything you can through at it. handles games like crisis easily. Does everything you could ever ask. Excellent cpu

Review Date: 12/22/10
Cons: No complaints so far

Pros: Too many to count
A great processor. Got it for $290 here on NCIX. I based my new build around this processor, and runs like a dream. Paired with 6 GB of DDR3 RAM, its pretty much the best thing ever. Very easy to overclock, you will need to get a better heat sink or cooling method in order to do so. Oh yea, hyper-threading is awesome.

Review Date: 12/13/10
Cons: Not really a weakness, but it overclocks better at 21x than 22x, so a 920 is just as good.

Pros: Excellent processor!Overclocks well
Excellent processor overall. Probably the best value i7.I have mine OC'd to 4.2 Ghz at 1.275v and it works great.

Review Date: 11/26/10
Cons: -Runs hot, but the noctua is doing it's job.-Locked multiplier.

Pros: Easy installation, no pins on the cpu, very fast, sold my 920 D0 and got this one on sale+ a nhu12p se2 for 300 bucks, seems like an excellent deal to me. Awesome overclocker
If you have a lot of budget, and if you're looking for the top of the line from intel (the x58 platform) you can't go wrong with this cpu, it overclocks like a champ too, with the right cooler. I paired this with 12gb ocz ddr3 ram and a sabertooth, no complaints so far, no bios flash needed.

Review Date: 11/17/10
Cons: none so far

Pros: very good cost to performace
I bougth this processor because of its cost to performance ratio and was not disapointed one bit. Would recommend this processor to anyone on a budget.

Review Date: 11/11/10
Cons: price?

Pros: Fast, quiet, cool
I am very impressed with this processor, as it is very fast and I have yet to use all of its power when I'm gaming. Recommended for anyone who wants a good processor. It is also very good for overclocking, which can be easily overclocked to 3.5+ghz.

Review Date: 11/06/10
Cons: Nothing really

Pros: Fast as expected, overclocks great, stable
Very good CPU for the price, once you overclock it pass 3.6Ghz, you can feel the thing kicking in when you render stuff. It really does save 2-3 days of rendering. In terms of how the binning goes, the last batch of 920s were better binned in general. My i7 930 can get up to 80C at 100% load with an overclock of 4.0Ghz on a Noctua U12-P SE2. It's probably my fans though. I plan on getting watercooling in the future, for now it will have to do.

Review Date: 10/11/10
Cons: Funny to install on MSI board

Great processor, runs really well... good for gaming, good for any multi thread application!The only odd thing that happened, occured during installation, it fits well, but just didnt seem right, the latch wouldnt close easily... i guess you have to put some arm into it!

Review Date: 10/07/10
Cons: -None

Pros: -Incredibly powerful-Easy to keep cool, even easier to overclock
I grabbed this along with a Gigabyte X58 UDR3 and it has been working flawlessly since. Benchmarked with CPU-heavy games such as GTA IV and Crysis Warhead and it didn't even flinch. Definitely the best CPU to fit on a new gaming rig.

Review Date: 10/05/10
Cons: You need a X58 board

Pros: Very easy to overclock and install
Very good cpu i got it when it was on sale and it works great. One of the most cost effective cpu's for a gaming rig these days.

Review Date: 09/30/10
Cons: None

Pros: Excellent Overclocking PotentialFast initial Core SpeedComporable to products of higher value
I had done initially quite a lot of research on a number of different websites to get an idea on which processors would perform the tasks I need most adequately. Comparing this product to the Extreme Edition Line i965 and such for the value and cost of this product I can't possibly justify shelling out the extra 500$+. This chip runs beautifully overclocked, and can handle the most extreme tasks, I bundled it with the Gigabyte X58-UDR3 (I know, I know..) I will likely upgrade to Asus soon but for the time being this is a wonderful processor and could not be happier with the performance and cost effectiveness it provides me with.

Review Date: 09/27/10
Cons: Cant get past 4.4 ghz.......yet

Pros: Easy to overclock, prices keep coming down
I am a folder and love these chips. Easy to overclock to 4.1 ghz. They are the cream of the crop so far.

Review Date: 09/26/10
Cons: non

Pros: SUPER FAST Easy to overclock to 4 ghz
Great cpu a lot faster then my old q6600 f3.4ghz when at stock clocks and when running at 4ghz the i7 930 is just unreal

Review Date: 09/17/10
Cons: High power consumptionPrice (got to keep the stock holder happy)

Pros: Certainly faster than what I had (but there will be something else faster)
New build system aside from the AMD Athlon 3800+and there’s just no comparison. Managed to overclocked the cpu up to 4.0GHz mark but temperature just way too high. Ran OCCTPT2.0.0a for stability and OCCTPT show up with some weird voltage (I think the 12v is way lower than it should—don’t remember). I got freaked out and set the cpu back to default 2.8GHz. Too bad I didn’t remember the voltage setting as I can’t get it to boot to Windows® with 4.0GHz again.

Review Date: 09/15/10
Cons: None so far

Pros: FastQuiet
I've had the processor for a week now, and, coming from a Core 2 Duo E6300; I must say it extremely fast. Looking at Task Manager's Performance screen seeing 8 logical cores being used for video processing is a thing of beauty. What used to take 5-6 hours, now takes 30 minutes. I am pleased.

Review Date: 09/13/10
Cons: have had none yet

Pros: quickeasy to over clock
this is great upgrade from my AMD i haven't used Intel in many years, and now i don't think i would go back easy to over clock. I would highly recommend the i7 930

Review Date: 09/13/10
Cons: One of the hottest running Intel CPUs to date.Heat sink is just adequate at factory presets, but I purchased an aftermarket heatsink for overclocking and peace of mind

Pros: extremely fast, hardware support for virtualization, large onboard mem cache
I decided to purchase the core i7 930 instead of the 950, at roughly $30 less. I couldn't justify spending the extra money for the same CPU running about 200Mhz faster - that's not something I would notice during average use. Overclockability is about the same for these i7's.The speed of this CPU is great, under windows 7 enterprise. I run multiple virtual machines for development, and occasionally have use for virtual PC to run xp mode. The difference is quite dramatic, coming from a core 2 duo e4300. Even without overclocking, this CPU is lightning fast for anything I throw at it.

Review Date: 09/11/10
Cons: Haven't seen any so far. This chip has been running stable for me. Haven't tried overclocking it yet though.

Pros: Very fastNot too pricyYou can overclock itIt fits any socket 1366 board
I have seen many positive reviews about this processor on the net. Decided to bite the bullet and purchase it. I couldn't be happier.

Review Date: 09/10/10
Cons: best when used with good cooling

Pros: great bang for the buck
I never overclocked a processor before, but with a good case, cooler, and motherboard, i got to 3.8Ghz without too much fiddling. i'm sure the big 4.0 is in my future so like i said this is a great bang for the buck.For those not sure how to overclock like a pro check out Linus on NCIX tech tips and he'll run you through it on his youtube video's no sweat.Thanks Linus

Review Date: 09/09/10
Cons: -Price

Pros: -Very cool-Easy to over clock
I've had no issues and enjoy this CPU, it was a true bargain, however if your not going to over clock I suggest the 950 over this.

Review Date: 09/01/10
Cons: Stock fan

Pros: ReliableO/C potential
I purchased this CPU for my latest computer build approx 3 months ago. It's been running well and has acceptable temps on stock cooling. I plan to O/C this when it gets a little older and others have reported that getting over 4GHZ is pretty easy to do so it will essentially have two lives.

Review Date: 08/31/10
Cons: -Nothing, this chip is awesome!

Pros: -Fast-Cheap-Overclockable-Socket 1366
This processor is stellar! It has 4 cores and supports Hyperthreading so it is like 8 processors working together. I had Team Fortress 2 running (all at max settings) and then I minimized it and started playing Age of Empires III (all at max settings still) and it ran beautifully! No complaints what so ever! This was all with running it at its stock 2.8ghz speed because I have yet to overclock it but plan to do so in the future. I have heard you can overclock this baby to 4.0ghz STABLE with a minor upgrade to the Heatsink. I bought an aftermarket heatsink so that I can OC safely when I decide to do it, but until then, this this is rock solid and I'm loving it in my new Gaming build!

Review Date: 08/25/10
Cons: None

Pros: Easy overclocking
Best cpu you'll find right now under $500.Ridiculously easy overclock to 4GHz.Takes some tweaking to get it to go higher.Highly recommended

Review Date: 08/24/10
Cons: Stock cooler it comes with sucks.

Pros: Fast, Multi-core with hyperthreading, Great for overclocking
Bought as part of a computer for gaming/video editing. Haven't been disappointed so far. Definitely need to get a better cooler for it though.

Review Date: 08/20/10
Cons: None

Pros: FastSame price as 920
Fast, powerful, with a small increase in clock speed vs the i7 920 for the same price. Cant go wrong with it. Great upgrade from my old q6600. Really notice the difference in video encoding.
