Sorry if this is a repost, but I couldnt find the topic anywhere. Why is there a picture of a Pentium D 805 being drilled with metal shavings everywhere in the overclocking article? It didnt say anything about physically modifying the cpu in the article.

Drill a hole through the center, it will make it run at 6Ghz, trust me!

I'm sure a google search would turn up a ton a results. But since you seem to not be very aware of what you're doing, I would just leave well enough alone; overclocking can be risky business.

In order to effectivly overclock a processor you must drill a hole in it to increase airflow and cooling.

(Please note sarcism)

In case you were serious:

The picture is not serious. It was meant to look like they were greatly modifying the CPU when actually they were just overclocking it.
