I don't see how people manage to get more from their 920 than 930 considering the multiplier is higher with the same stock QPI... Please explain!

If so, that's another detail in favour of the 930, since it's still pot luck with some retailers as to which stepping of 920 you get and the differences between C0 and D0 are like night and day when it comes to overclocking capability.
