I've decided on the i920 - and am trying to figure out if I should jump on a sale price for the C0 or wait a month or two and pick up a D0 when all the C0 CPU's have been cleared out of inventory and maybe MOBO / RAM prices have come down a bit more.
My understanding is that the C0's run at a higher voltage and therefore run a bit hotter - and the D0's run a little cooler b/c of the lower voltage - hence a small bit of extra overclockability.
Can anybody quantify the difference between the two in terms of heat - and in terms of overclockability.
* Are we talking about 3.7 vs 3.8 - or 3.7 vs 4.5 in terms of OC ability.
* For heat - what are we talking about. The room my PC is in currently is about the warmest in my home without any PC. So I'm a tad bit concerned about a massive heating element being introduced - but I really want the i7 so I can forget about my CPU for 3-5 years and build around it.
This system is a big investment for me for a PC - so I want to get this right.
