The evils of Overclocking make Windows look bad  - PCstats.com The evils of Overclocking make Windows look bad

A post over at the Raymond Chen's MSDN blog caught my eye this morning, as it raised an issue I haven't see seriously discussed in a long time: the so-called perils of overclocking. Chen has ferreted out the reason for a number of anomalous crash reports coming into Microsoft: overclocking. When they first noted the reports indicating that the CPU was tanking for no good reason, they contacted Intel who suggested that perhaps such users had mis-matched their RAM, but that wasn't the cause. "The other half said, "What's overclocking?" He called them and walked them through some configuration information and was able to conclude that they were indeed all overclocked. But these people were not overclocking on purpose. The computer was already overclocked when they bought it. These "stealth overclocked" computers came from small, independent "Bob's Computer Store"-type shops, not from one of the major computer manufacturers or retailers."
