im sure id have heard if it was actually possible, but has anyone even attempted to mod the bios of a decent latest generation dual xeon Motherboard to allow some overclocking? those 12+ core chips are crying out for a bit of extreme cooling and a speed bump. i understand the hardware (power) limitations of having a board not designed to be overclocked, but there is almost certainly some headroom there.. just need a way to get it. my line of work is in animation and rendering. id love a 24 core workstation, but the lower single thread performance, and massive cost over an overclocked i7, means its much more sensible economically to buy a few i7 gaming machines instead. overclocking could tip the balance back a bit. plus.. wheres the fun in a machine you cant tweak?
