I can Haswell overclock?

hardCOREware is engaging in a bit of informed speculation on how overclocking the upcoming Haswell chips will be accomplished.  Now that Intel has relaxed the draconian lock down of frequencies and multipliers that they enforced for a few generations of chips, overclockers are once again getting excited about their new chips.  They talk about the departure of the Front Side Bus and the four frequencies which overclockers have been using in modern generations and then share their research on why the inclusion of a GPU on the CPU might just make overclockers very happy.

"This is an overclocking preview of Intel’s upcoming Haswell platform. We have noticed that they have made an architectural change that may be a great benefit to overclockers. Check out our thoughts on the potential return of BCLK overclocking!"

Here are some more Processor articles from around the web:

This does look promising, I read something similar a while back.

From what I can tell, with Haswell in order to reduce temps / power even more, Intel is making it so BCLK's are seperate for Core / UnCore / iGPU.

The most obvious change there is we can see the return of being able to overclock non unlocked Intel CPU's again. ^.^

Haswell has been teased for nearly 2 years now and I can't take it anymore. I must see the reviews. Tell Ryan to post it already! :(

I'll be curious as to the % they'll be able to overclock vs sandybridge and and vs ivy, should let us know if they are actually letting us do more or this just "looks promising"

A comparison review of these 3 generations would be great to see.
