Default Nehalems: A Different Overclocking Approach?

First, given that these chips are supposed to show up a little more than a month from now, there's been few examples of people getting engineering samples and testing them out.

Second, maybe this is just me not looking hard enough, but for the relatively few examples of reported Nehalem overclocking we do have, they seem to all be increase-the-multiplier overclocks, not FSB overclocks. We know that the multiplier in Nehalem is going to be a bit flexible, allowing for an extra multiplier or two. However, this report indicates Nehalems apparently have up to at least a 31X multiplier defined, which hardly seems necessary given the expected speeds of the chip.
