Similarly, the frequency of the junior member of this family, Core i5-2300, can be overclocked to 3.3-3.5 GHz.

The advantage of this limited frequency increase is that it doesn’t require any voltage adjustment at all: everything works fine at the default voltages. Also, no special cooling is required either: a regular boxed CPU cooler will do just fine.

the SB chips have to be unlocked in order to be overclocked, any baseclock change will kill the boards.

the 955 is a very good chip, and when compared overclocked to a stock SB chip it should win.
all chips from the 2300 to the 2500 have turbo boost( this is OC)

an i5 2300 at 3.3Ghz (an overclock you could achieve on all 4 cores) would be better than a phenom x4 at 4Ghz.

not really, turbo boost is highly unimpressive on a H61 board, it's short lived and pretty paltry (201mhz) and only a P or Z board will make an i5 2300 as fast as an i7 950 @ stock
