But I thought that all the new "C" processors were exactly the same, just clocked differently. If the laptop could handle the heat of the 3.2ghz proc, why couldn't it handle one overclocked to 3.2?
That is, if it's even possible to overclock a Sager.
Each processor is made independantly, not just simply adjusted. If adjusting were the case, everyone would buy the slowest, cheapest processor and just boost the speed. Each processor is actually made slightly differently, and in those differences are limits on how much current can flow. If you increase the current on any processor past oem standards, it gets incredibly hot. The fact that makers such as intel and amd already clock the processors as fast as they can with the current cooling. So if you are to somehow overclock the laptop, you qould most likely fry everything around the motherboard before it shut off.
