It's mostly a hobby--those who do it enjoy it for it's own sake and would do so even if it had no significant effect on real-world tasks. They like the idea of "getting something for nothing"--getting more than they paid for.

A corporation dealing with highly critical data isn't likely to overclock. It's for "enthusiasts".

And as a side note, I'll bet that if we truly knew the longevity ramifications of improper OC'g I'd bet many won't push their systems.

No, definitely not. "Softclocking" is possibly the worst thing you can do. As others have suggested, you need to start with more memory so that you are running in dual channel. Anything you do outside of that will be fruitless. Trust me, it's all relative. All of the components work together when OCing. OCing your current setup without Dual channel is pointless.
