SGI is currently shipping some overclocked Rackable boxes to initial customers and is burning in some boxes in its labs to reckon what the likely lifespan is on the motherboard and CPU when they run considerably hotter.
Hmmm. Ok.

The company thinks the CPUs will last more than a month but probably not more than a year based on earlier tests.
WHAT???

Now all they need to do is stuff in a couple 580's, and traders will be able to destroy in-game economies like Panau's too!

I would really like to know what the hell they consider a good over clock not even lasting a year. a sad day for all overclockers the knuckle headed rich company's are blowing up chips because they can? I can hear them already ya bill the tech guys say 1.8 vcore is normal for a 6 core at 4.0 ha ha. well the warranty is only 3 days outta the box so i guess will have to buy new machines every other week. nothing like job security
