Hehe... That is the impression I get. Sometimes the amount of effort people put in to get just minor performance improvements with significant risk and expenditure is mind-boggling. I think overclocking is a hobby of itself though and the extra performance is simply a measuring stick of pushing the envelope. I don't think a lot of people do it solely to have a faster pc or video card, I think they do it to see how far they can push the limits of the technology and how they can tweak it.
