I like the idea of people buying i7 920 (2.66 stock) and over clocking to mid 3.s and low 4.s.
People tend to forget that you are over clocking.. even though you can get the 920s to be the same speed if not faster then the stock 975, you are still over clocking... Take the 920 for example, stock speed 2.66 lets turn them into two different cars. 55mph for stock 2.66 is the set cruise speed. take the 975, 3.33 lets just say with out ratio or anything the set cruise speed on 975 is somewhere around 75-80mph. Sure the 920 can step on the gas and reach the speed of the 975 and maintain that speed. It can even step on the gas even more and pass the 975 in speed. It can reach a stable 100mph sure with the correct cooling why not... but we all know, both cars have different engine under the hood. Just remember with over clocking, its great fun and get the most out of the chip/engine, but it will also wear it down and burn it out faster.
