Very well balanced post, I agree with you.
I also believe the "Black Edition" does not come with a heatsink.
OCers will have to stay away from AMD for now.
i like to OC sometimes, but it is not the only reason why would i buy this CPU. It's cheaper (main reason), and i have heatsink. I'll stay with AMD allways (no offense to intel fanboys), so untill barcelona came out (real barcelona-3,0GHz and+), i thought that would be most reasonable investment. I have x2 4200 for now.
