Just a rumor, or a horrible truth!?
One of my friends said that AMD is now "locking" their higher-end processors to prevent overclocking! Please tell me it ain't so! I was planning on getting an xp 2500+ and overclocking it to the speed of a 3200+ (which another one of my friends has done), so I really hope it isn't true. He said that he's even seen manuals on how to "unlock" them, but that it was a risky process that could permanently damage the processor. If this rumor is true, does anyone know why AMD would do that? I think a lot of people buy their processors with the purpose of overclocking them (since they run so much cooler than Pentiums), so I can't really see why they would do that. Any input is appreciated, thanks.
