Here I just want to see if there was any difference between Windows 7 and Windows 8 in terms of overclocking potential. To this end I overclocked an Core 2 Duo E8400 with my sister's. Ended up with an overclock of 4.9 Ghz on air cooling, which is well within the normal range for E8400 overclocks. Overclocking might be a boring and tedious process that takes hours upon hours. but in my part, it's quite an improvement, as compared with previous versions of Windows.
