Intel's new Core i7-980X Gulftown processor kicked some serious ass in our first round of benchmarking, but for the most part, it's over clocking potential is still unknown. Its 32nm process should help it run cooler, but the 2 extra cores generate a great deal of extra heat that cannot be ignored. Well if you're worried about buying an over clocking dud, or simply don't have the patience to mess around in the bios, custom builder Origin PC has you covered.
Each and every Core i7 offered has an over clocking option available directly out of the box, and that includes Intel's newest 6 core monster processor. For a mere $1,044 (only $45 over list), customers can get a 1GHz over clock on day one that comes with a manufacturer's warranty. The over clocking option forces you switch over to liquid cooling, but is a great option if you want the fastest rig around, and you can't be bothered to do it yourself.
