Default Intel core duo: Does overcloking it gives a big boost performance??

Now that I'm jumping to the intel core duo I ask you is overclocking it worth it? I have read countless users about how they overclocked their cpu past 3.5ghz and up but does it really give you a performance boost?!!!

Of course it does. On every cpu I have used since the P3, Ocing makes a very nice difference. Just look at the performance difference between the E6600 and the X6800 extreme at stock speeds and imagine adding another 600MHz on top of that.

I was saying that because not long ago I read an article on intel based on pentium 4 and they argued about how overclocking didnt make a huge difference in performance! they said that the P4 was so bad that having a pentium 4 clocked at 3.2ghz made no difference from a 2.4ghz!!

hehe, the P4 was so bad that only clock speed could save it This review includes a few P4, X2, and Core2 cpus so you can get an idea of the performance differences

On 3dmark2001, on stock i got about 45000 in my current setup.

I OC'd my processor to 3.2Ghz and slightly overclocked my vid card, and my score jumped to 57000.

Even small overclocks help a lot with the Core 2's. This should prove it as there is a huge leap in performance on an 800mhz OC.

What's the record holding for overclocking on NVNEWS for someone with a Core 2 Extreme Edition X6800? 3.7GHz 4.2GHz? Higher?

Overclocking can make a huge diffrence been overclocking since the Celeron 300 days.

By a cheap CPU then overclock it higher then the fastest CPU out is very nice.
