candle_86why else would they have decoupled the internal components minus the gpu from bclk if not for this reason? They can still sell K series as higher binned chips.
Zuhl3156I was never any good at overclocking with the BCLK anyway so I don't care. I couldn't do anything with my Q6600 despite everyone claiming they would OC like a champ. That's why I broke into a happy dance when the i7-2600k was released. Overclocking so easy your grandma can do it!
