Dude, are you serious? There's no such thing as "overkill" in the computer world. Gimme a 100 core processor and let me slap 4 of em on one mobo and guess what? I'll have a 396 of those cores folding 100% and the other 4 will be alllll for me

Switching from single core to dual core cost quite a drop in overclockability - going from 2-4 cores is probably going to make things even worse.

I think Intel will have better luck than AMD putting out a quad core chip that actually is worth a crap for clockin'. The DC Intels aren't bad for clocking at all, now the AMD DC's are a whole other ball game.

Yeah they are still pretty good clockers, but the highest clock on any Intel dualies have been obtained with one of the cores disabled.
