Side benefits of overclocking

I've been reading various tech forums in preparation for building my first system and getting some insight into tweaking it. Among the forum crowd, it seems like overclocking your cpu is a pretty popular thing, if not standard fare when building a system.

My question is, what else can you get out of OCing besides extra clock cycles and inner satisfaction? Have any of the guys sufficiently impressed a lady with his OC prowess? If so, what do the ladies look for in an overclock: max frequency? top fsb? blazing vcore? % over stock speed?

If I were ripped like Michael Phelps, then this wouldn't be an issue. But I'm not, so thus I'm curious about this topic. Too bad I didn't test this out while I was still at MIT :p

I'm pretty sure when you turn up the FSB you auto impregnate all the attractive ladies within a 50 meter radius. So at MIT, typically approximately 0 people.

I told a lady I was 8 hours "Prime stable" and her panties instantly became ankle-warmers.

There was a famous fable
of a man who told the woman he was was prime stable
she threw him on top of the table
then got some strong and durable cable
rode him like a horse in the stable
she wanted more, and was ready and able

Women at MIT are like parking spaces; the good ones are either taken or handicapped.

Thanks y'all

I always tell the chicks that I have a giant 12" video card. Man, they really dig that. I guess size does matter.
