    Default P45 to bring overclocking twist!

    After speaking to MSI's P45 engineers and OCZ's Tony Leach, Bit-tech have learned that overclocking on Intel's upcoming P45 chipset will have a few twists.

    So there you have it, prepare to invest in some serious time if you’re upgrading, or wait and see what happens when everything gets integrated on the CPU with Nehalem because AMD doesn’t have this problem. However word is on the net that Intel will lock overclocking out of every Nehalem CPU apart from the most expensive Bloomfield options, basically screwing over all us value-enthusiasts. With this in mind, is there even any point in review sites “reviewing” overclocking any more, since it's unlikely that the end user will be able to replicate it because of equipment diversity?
    Wow, it's getting harder isn't it?
    I bet Intel planning it all along, make it harder to OC so when Nahalem released then not too many people mind about the overclocking is locked. And most of us can't afford the Bloomfied either, you need a deep pocket for this chip.

    Well, we have to wait and see.

    i think this oc lock from intel will give amd a big market boost. because i know for me if an amd chip is going to cost less and be overclockable than a faster un oc'able intel chip, the choice of wich to buy is simple.

    I have to admit that with intel steadily ramping up default FSB speeds, you'll have no choice but to use high FSB speeds when overclocking, so we may all get hit by this problem, seriously.

    but on the nehalem overclocking lock, i think it will only affect those users who would have bought say, the e2xxx and e4xxx, or low end higher cache chips, not those who shell out £200 or more on cpu's like the e8400/q6600's.

    Bloomsfield will be expensive, but i'm sure they'll be models available that are reasonably priced for the average overclocker who likes good hardware, just not the budget orientated crowd.
