I don't understand the obsession with overclocking. Yeah, chips are torture tested at a high speed, and the ones that don't pass usually get stamped with a slower speed.
But when you OC something...well, there isn't any free lunch. Running it higher throws heat into the equation, lower battery time. With the advancements in processors, gadgets are becoming throw away devices in a year. Seems everyone I see always wants the latest do-dad anyway, so why screw with it?

Overclocking is like optimizing your car on a rolling road.

Getting the most out of the hardware by pushing it past it's factory limits.

I've had my friend do the same to my computer & practically enabled turbo mode for my games & it really does improve performance.

Of course if you push it too far you will burn out the chip.
