Thanks Guest.In the story, i don't think this manager is very knowledgeable. For example, when asked about his competition, he said he doesn't use AMD so he doesn't know.
Short answer is that they can be. X79 would allow for baseclock overclocking as well as multiplier unlocking in some instances. Maybe Guest is getting confused with Xeon E3 ( LGA1155/C202/Z68 etc) which are multiplier locked on a chipset that isn't overly compatible with baseclock oc.Guest3: How come the Xeon CPU's can't be overclocked in the X79 boards?
You are obviously unfamiliar with the stories of
Lamborghini and the Ford GT40.
