Default Overclocking Goes Mainstream

Up until recently, overclocking, a practice of running your system components at higher than specified speeds, was considered only for the enthusiast community. The concept of overclocking has been popular ever since people started building their own computers instead of purchasing from the likes of Dell or HP. Thus far, the practice of overclocking was an industry taboo that the majority of companies despised, and frankly who could blame them? Purchasing a less expensive piece of hardware and cranking the speeds up with just a few BIOS settings and meeting or exceeding the performance of a much more expensive part appears to be dreadful for business.
