It should be underwater this weekend, so perhaps I can show you 5Ghz 24/7 ...or perhaps not
For me, it's more about the lack of realisitic gains form overclocking. Like sure ,rendering a video, or crunching, gains are there, but anything else...really questionable.
We are adding a decent amount more voltage to get these gains, too. It's kinda cool that Intel has made these CPUs are tough as they are, and that they take the abuse we are all dishing out to them, and that Intel will even warranty that, for the cost of 12 beer here.
I kinda wish people would buy that warranty, and push harder.
