    Oh yeah, you'll be able to take that puppy to 6GHz easy, maybe even 6.8GHz on air--higher if you use water.

    In all seriousness, it all comes down to the chip itself, and the only way to know is to OC and watch the results. Some chips will OC like a dream, others (like a former P4 of mine) will sputter along with barely 200MHz increase. It's a matter of luck. If anyone guarantees you a specific OC level, hold onto your wallet.
