Not being rude but its not that amusing.

Anyway, he's probably done it, although when the person turns it on, it'll be freakishly unstable. Say, hardly turning on, unstable. Or, it'll simply explode, or, a scam, but then again, its slightly confusing.

Oh I don't know, don't listen to me, I'm speaking rot, I'm not quite sure whats going on.

he didn't actually overclock it to 6.8ghz. its a dual core processor. each core runs at 3.4ghz. so he just added them up and said the processor runs at 6.8ghz.
