Re: A tactical mitigation/solution...?

Interesting potential solution, for a which I can see a few potential problems.

1. Modern CPU's already overclock like crazy (aka TurboBoost)

2. Statistical distributions will come into play - some proportion of chips will go unstable at a 1-2% overclock.

3. (Intel) Marketing would see it as "free gear" and kill it with fire.
