Default Pentium D's and Overclocking

Not that I'm going to get a Pentium D, but look at this .

Maybe Intel's good for something besides Conroe after all.

Note: I don't wanna start a flame war. Just an interesting article.

EDIT: Fixed linkage

It's cheap and fast yeah....but at those speeds it uses a LOT of power. Your electric bill will increase significantly.

Well, THG is known to be rather off the mark. I bet there should be a big banner saying: "Sponsored by Intel" at the bottom.
