I have noticed lately. That when I overclock a part, And leave it at those levels. I rename my part as the Overclocked Equivalent. As an example my Geforce 5900 LX, Which a 400/700 part but uses the Ultra PCB, and I have it overclocked to 450/850 and I label it a Geforce FX 5900 Ultra.

Moving on. I have labeled my Athlon XP 2500+ @ 3200+ Speeds a 3200+. And by all means and nature it is Running @ 3200+ Speeds. So why not name it that? But lately people have been saying "Thats not a 3200+. Thats a 2500+" Or thats not an FX 5900 Ultra, thats a 5900XT. Do people who overclock take something away from those who buy the real thing? Are we not justified in saying "We have such and such because it meets the same specification as said part?"

I know its a silly question. But I have been seeing it alot lately. What do you think? :ORDER:

I see where you're coming from, and that's why I label my cpu as "Barton @ 3200+", and if I had an NV38-able NV35, I would simply say "NV35 @ NV38 clocks".

At least put an (*) after it, that way no one can question your ethics. ;)
