Yeah, the overclock they usually give you is really small -between 50-100mhz maximum- and you can go way higher. They just do it that much because they're too cautious and it gives them a good reason to raise the prices.

Not the PCB size, but the fact that the heatsink is dual-slot. You know what that means? It's HOT! And that's bad...

Which means that the VPU runs hot, or they wouldn't use a dual-slot cooler.
