What do they mean they locked the clocks? Does that mean you cannot OC them?

They also kept referring to 'white box' processors. What is that?

I think that "White Box" means that it is a pre-built system.

Well, i know a white box version of software is just the software and the license. No box or manuals or nothing. Seems kinda pointless to me, dosent seem like it would knock that much off of the price.

You can overclock... the FSB can still be changed, to increase memory speed and such. You just cant touch the multiplier... big whoop.

At least Intel still won at the:

VirusScan and Dr.DivX multitasking test (in seconds) (Lower times are better)

And yes I am an Intel Fanboy

Its kinda sad that the only Intel that beat the AMD was an overclocked one. Things might change once Intel releases a higher end dual core.
