I don't think it's a big loss anyway. I lost interest in OCing a long time ago*. The reasons are that 1) it became too easy 2) it is allowed 3) it involves less and less risks every generation. That's not OCing. To me OC only really made sense when it was something a few select people were capable or brave enough to perform. When it meant going against the norm and when it meant a performance advantage to those few brave enough to perform a hard mod or use a bios coming from from forum member in an "obscure" website. Now OC is widespread, it's allowed and encouraged by the vendors themselves, it's even covered by warranty and you are given full control over every single thing related to OCing your PC. What's the point, use the tools and you'll achieve the same results as the rest of the world (with slight differences based on luck) and if it all comes down to that, is this really such a loss? Not in my eyes, but maybe I'm alone. * I still OC to safe 24/7 clocks but don't do it for fun or to find the limits, etc. Just simple practical OCing now.
