Quote:Originally posted by The_Punisher29 After the rumours of Intel making a overclocking motherboard code name "Rapid City", Intel got on the 18 March a patent on their processor giving them a lot of dissposal to stop overclocking like a special chip which will deterior the performance of the CPU when it will run at higher speed... Now how are we gonna hack this chip http://www.theinquirer.net/?article=8518
Quote:Originally posted by Dante Intel's greed will hurt them in the end. As more and more people become interested in overclocking and performance tweaking, making an anti-overclocking chip is not exactly the smartest move. People love Intel chips because they O/C so friggin' high. I wonder how their fanbase would slip if they couldn't O/C at all.

Quote:Originally posted by The_Punisher29 I've read that this patent is 2-3 years old
