From what I have seen there is no performance gain in raising HTT, and if its taken to high (more than 1100) it can lead to premature failure, or so it has been said. There is a lot of info out there suggesting its not good to overclock HTT, though I know there are also a lot of guys doing it. Personally I would say if there is no performance gain then why add more stress to it?

I benched it my self to verify if there is in fact no performance gain and that seems to be the case.
