Makes sense for AMD it seems now since their CPUs are already pretty much at the line in terms of clock speeds.Agree,
I always laugh when I see people buy cheaper CPUs with the intention of overclocking them, and then spend a lot on cooling, just to get it somewhere around the CPU they didn't buy because they figured they'd save money by overclocking.
I do miss the days when that wasn't true though. Buying the Q6600 for $250 and getting a G0 stepping was fantastic. Easily OCed to 3GHz on stock cooler, 3.4GHz was common for most with good cooling, and didn;t have to even spend much on cooling. I think my Zalman I bought was $60 bucks and kept it from ever getting above 55c.
