No reason not to overclock a decent laptop for benching... been doing it for years now without consequence. No need to overclock for simple gameplay under most circumstances, but life would be far too boring if all there was to do was play games. If you cut corners and buy a junky laptop to save a few bucks, it might get too hot, but thermals are never an issue with a good machine.
It sure did take them a LONG time to discover and fix that "bug" LOL. If they are going to be liars, they should at least try harder. They're not very good at it.
News flash! None of these machine have exhibited any evidence of damage or malfunction from having the guts overclocked out of the CPU and GPUs.

People that know nothing about high performance laptops should remain silent, or at least be more careful about exposing their ignorance in public. It's very unflattering and it causes people that know better to lose respect for them. The fact of the matter is, many of the high end laptops with unlocked mobile Extreme CPUs and desktop K and X series CPUs are engineered to overclock, advertised as overclockable, and some come from the factory with the CPU and GPU already overclocked.
Bottom line here is NVIDIA is full of crap, have overstepped their boundaries and need to back off and stop interfering with the exercise of property ownership rights. These are MY MACHINES, and NVIDIA WILL NOT dictate what I can or cannot do with them.
