    I have a mildy overclocked 8350 (running 4.5ghz) and with the huge heatsint and fan it doesn't get very hot, but pushing one to 5ghz is a different story.

    There has to be a machanism to punish a bunch of companies screwing many people out of small sums each that would go unpunished otherwise. Keeps all companies from price fixing.
