This will probably be just like Nvidia's and ATI's offerings for overclocking. Gives a real basic overclock and won't void your warranty. While these can be good for those less hardcore they are very unlikely to replace traditional OC'ing methods.

Arhmmm... let me telling you a Story about the sooo good Asus and Gigaschnout companies...
Gigabyte was so big and making so many boards that flaws in a typical model would be the less of their damn thought. So they made the beautiful 965P-DS3... a board that DIED on me 3 times on a STOCK SYSTEM! Changed for an Asus board and it was an happy ending for this computer...
But a new computer in another house was driven by Asus ATI graphic cards. These cards were so hot that fusion could be generated! So these cards in crossfire were easily the worst... out of the box... stuff anyone could buy. Some computers could barely play games for 10 minutes. Due to MIR, no refund or exchange is accepted.
p.s. : I was able to lower the temperature by 20 Celcius at loads with a powerful fan, but now my quiet system isn't so quiet anymore. So... do I trust MSI more than Asus and GIgabyte... absolutefriggingly!
Useless feature. Of course, we don't know how it works. Maybe you set the frequency with the +/- and then click the OC button like the turbo on 3x86 computers... Then, it's a feature that's not too bad. We do however have that in software now, so why the OC button?
No, really. It shouldn't be a stretch to come up with a chip that does the repetitious min/maxing that most overclockers do. What better than a tiny computer to try all the likely combinations of voltages and whatnot to boost the numbers? However, the 'dark arts' and various amounts of voodoo involved in coaxing 5 GHz out of thin air will remain the bastion of the elite for some time yet, methinks. As far as joe-on-the-street is concerned, at least this puppy will save him some time with all the trivial tweaks so that he can get to the bleeding edge more quickly.
