Lighten up. In case you missed it he said he can't overclock and even pointed out his use of quotes.
If you want to be nit picky overclocking is not pushing hardware past it's max performance but TO
it. Overclocking takes the hardware past factory spec, which you could call "standard state" but that is never near the max. It is set for stability and longevity not necessarily the fastest performance.
Intel used to push a new chip until it crashed then dropped it a notch and called it X
GHz. It's why overclocking was so limited without changing voltage and needing extra and even extreme cooling. AMD always designed a chip to have plenty of room to grow and why they support overclocking and enabling extra cores.
