Forget it. Intel doesn't want people Overclocking their CPUs'. That's why they built in limitations into SB. If you want to overclock you gotta spend for it.
I doubt that AMD will ever get like this. Their aim is to compete with Intel. Why the hell would they adopt Intel's Grinch-like attitude. They already tell you they won't honor OC'ed CPUs'. So AMD owners just don't mention anything about OC'ing or non AMD coolers when they send them in for Warranty. If you're smart you run the stock cooler on your CPU for a bit so they can SEE that it's seen use.
You can do the same thing with Intel and that's why they're building Limtations into their newer architecture.
