Just curious, why is this information useful?
Well my understanding was that OCing reduces the life expetancy of the components. If that was related to the bus speed, then you could justify getting a higher end CPU (i.e. more multis) to put less strain on the mobo or get a more robust mobo.
Also I am trying to figure out whether the Gigabyte S3 will last long enough under an OC environment, or whether I should get the DS3? Just trying to keep the cost down as it seems that for every component there is a good reason to get the next better model - eg. PSU , RAM, case, etc.
