I guess I wasn't clear, sorry about that.

With Intel's processors that don't overclock, those people who are looking for a simple set up will get just that. If you want something more powerful, you have to buy a different processor. When I had processors in the past, I gained more life out of them by overclocking them. If I had, say, a SB processor, I would be stuck with that performance no matter what. It's not really that cost effective.

I guess I do a bit of both (hobby and performance) these days, but some who know enough about the BIOS can squeeze enough performance out of it until they decide to upgrade their system..

You just met someone. I use my LGA775 all the time, and i have no intentions of upgrading thumb.gif

I agree.

No it isn't. Those cores are locked for a reason, because that chip is unsuitable to run them. AMD offer you a higher end card fully certified to work properly as it's shipped and what do people do? Buy the lower end stuff, unlock it (or complain when they can't and make out like AMD blow) and then when it starts playing up, RMA it costing the company money. Any real fan would buy the higher end stuff without needing to unlock stuff. Instead, I saw people thrashing AMD when they were pondering the idea of stopping people from unlocking disabled cores. Heaven forbid AMD run a business.

Overclocking is entirely different because you're just raising clocks, not unlocking things on the silicon that was intentionally locked for a good reason.

If someone posted on here saying they managed to unlock XY and Z DLC for a game without paying for it you people would be ALL over them for it. Unlocking extra CPU or GPU cores is putting the company out of money and that company is AMD, who need the more more than others.

Overclocking for value has been dead since LGA775 and I'm happy with the way things are now. Buy a 3.3GHz CPU and overclock it to 4.5GHz. Getting more "value" from your purchase. That's just fine.

That post sucks. I'm sick of the crap showing up in the news threads these days--not everything you come across posted online is news or newsworthy. Also, it reads like one giant plug for all of their ad sponsors.

I could NOT agree more.

whoa that article is some pile of bs, the sweet spots of SB and SBE silicone are completely locked out with OCing reserved to chips with a price premium defeating the essence of OCing joy.

It's obvious to me that someone actually read the article in the source (or a few people did actually)...

Yes it is, and the author of it is flat wrong, OC is limited to a select few intel chips, and because those chips cost so much, there is hardly no value to be found in Intel Chips... On the AMD side though, they just don't make the cut, the Core i3/i5/i7 series clock for clock is making AMD an unwanted stepchild...

Intel's decision to lock the Sandy Bridge / Ivy Bridge on lower end chips was a slap in the face to enthusiast / overclockers. I hope Haswell will change this, but probably not unless the public flogs Intel enough to make them change it again... (Personally I'm waiting for Haswell)
