In my mind, it kind of spits in the face of the spirit of overclocking to put together a $1000+ system and then try to tweak out 10% more performance, that other than in number, you'll never notice. Take a challenge and buy $300 worth of parts and get $1000+ performance out of them. You know?

And besides that , spending that much money on parts just to turn around and risk their survival is just wasteful. But, not to worry, I'm sure mommy will buy you a new CPU when it frys.

Easy there overshocked ... we get this all the time ... it comes with the turf. Since our Stickies are so poorly marked, most newcomers don't even realize that they're there! :(
