Agreed. Personally I used to OC my Slot-1 machines back when the Celeron 300A could easily hit 450Mhz (and was significantly faster than the Slot-1 PII 450Mhz due to the Celeron's full speed L2 cache) with just a minor bus speed change in the bios or jumper (Abit BH6).

For today I see no need to OC seriously anymore, machines are often fast enough and the only motivation I'd have to even consider OC'ing is if I'm interested in being the next benchmark king. All the extra mods I'd implement just to keep things under control could easily be reinvested in simply purchasing a faster machine or key system component (graphics card for gaming, CPU, RAM, etc.)
