    Intel's Core is the way to go. All of them overclock very well, from the early E6600 (3.6GHz on air is doable) to the newer quad cores. Especially the Q6600, which overclocks like the nuts on air, never mind water. From reading masses of reviews and forum consensus, AMD is in trouble in comparison. Phenom is left to eat dust, especially when the new gen of quad cores comes out from Intel. Okay, it's not that bad, but it isn't the Core killer it was hyped up to be.

    Intel. A couple of fanboys have voted AMD, but Intel EATS them. 4.1GHz at least on air with a quadcore? Mmm, yummy.

    Im an AMD fan boi all the way tbh, but... the facts speak for themselves, with the Q6600 getting to 3.6 without any trouble on Air, Intel is without a doubt the best at OCing at the moment, and it is at the moment, AMD may yet suprise us.

    Sadly, B3 stepping for the Phenom would have to be some sort of miracle over B2 for them to come back all the way. Not to mention Penryn is also just around the corner for Intel.
