Locked, completely locked. I don't want to have to pay $1000 on a CPU just to be able to overclock it. I don't think this is a wise decision and I think it'll piss a lot of people off.

Let's hope the 45nm Hi-K Phenoms are a worthy alternative.

Thats it!

I will not consider an Intel set up at all.

And if this is true then AMD now have a huge advantage point.
