Default No overclocking?

I think this was a well done informative article bit I dont think this article is complete without overclocking. As things stand, results are reasonably close and none of the cpus really stand out, but if each of these cpus were overclocked to its limit, then the results would spread out a bit. The article mentions that it doesnt make sense to get the Phenom when you can get a better performing Intel for the same price and I think the overclocking would make the difference even more pronounced. Follow-up article maybe?

intel leap ahead, intel have good and cheap cpus, you can overclock to higer to 5000 mhz with E8400 and 3600 mhz with Q6600 and obtain stable performance while, with phenom you can't do that.

Re: overclocking, Intel CPU's are usually more overclock-capable than AMD's. This happens because Intel uses a higher tolerancy between the maximum CPU clock achieved in their lab and the clock they are going to label the CPU.

Cheers,
