I just purchased an i7 930 and a V8 heatsink. What are you guys with a 930 typically clocking it at? I'm just curious as to what I'm going to be looking for, obviously something 3.0GHz to 4.0GHz, but I also want to be realistic, so I'm wondering what you guys are clocking it at so I have something to shoot for. Thanks.

you should do it yourself, all you need to do is pull up the FSB and voltages, post some specs so we can help, your RAM/RAM timings are important too.

Here's mine:

34c-40c idle, 55c-60c load. Prime 95 stable for 18 hours (I had to leave for the day so I stopped short of 24 hrs.) Could go to 4.2-4.3 but that would introduce more heat. Using a Prolimatech heatsink.

Here is another example of a i7 930 over clock, refer to the chart near the bottom of the page, they reached 4.2 on air.

Mileage may vary depending on hardware, hope this helps. :3
