why would a motherboard manufacturer even add this function? seems kinda stupid if all it does is damage things.
Good question, phil - I'm wondering the same thing as well. The only guess I can make at this having any usefulness is actually down the road when video cards finally start to fully saturate the PCI-E 2.0 lanes, but even then I doubt the increase in performance would be much with the lane OC.

I still do it though it spite of nvidia cards seem to be affected by adjusting it more, however in general it is not consistent to cards or motherboards, for instance on my freinds phenom 2 system I am typing this on I have it at 105 right now but it can go as high as 108.

And there is no benifit if you are overclocking it anyways for a video card.
Unless you got some raid card that is saturating the bus and need it to go faster it should bump up the speeds theoretically, but idk.

False. Most, if not ALL, CPUs (and many other electronic devices) are rated and manufactured at higher than stock clocks (for other devices it would be, say, power input/output, amount of light omitting, etc), and then during final stages of production to increase life span and to ensure that the product will work even if there is the slightest of glitches or bugs at the "rated" clock. Idk how else to describe this, but I did my best wink.gif sorry if my wording was a tad odd, but its hard to describe this process without seeing it first thumb.gif

Ahh worded that wrong.....I have a problem of typing stuff out without re reading it to make sure it what Im trying to get at. What I said would be more of the topic on max voltage specs. which just deals with how fast electron migration starts to accelerated exponential faster then they intended it to.

They dont manufacture them at higher then stock clocks, they make it and then see how high they can get them to go to see how high of quality that piece of silicon is at a certain voltage that will make them last for a certain amount of time. Which is where the VID comes in with binning products. Cause say that the i5 2400 for example if they have a chip that doesnt meet the standards they set for it to function right as a stock i5 2400 but it does as a i5 2310, so then they brand it that. If it doesnt they keep going down the model list until it works where they want it to be at. So they can set the microcode of the cpu so that the motherboard sees what the cpu is and how to use it right and at the speeds the model is speced to be at not when its manufactured. You seem to talking about more of the R&D process.

And there better not be a glitch or "bug" in hardware cause if there was crap would be crashing all the time. Which mean a manufacturing error on large scale like the SB PCH was degrading from normal usage issue that happened back in January 2011. Or even better when the Phenom 1st gen came out which was ridiculous http://techreport.com/articles.x/13741
