AMD’s Black Edition processors are very popular among overclockers as the unlocked multiplier allows for a lot of leeway when you are adjusting clock speeds.  Intel has not really been supportive of their fans in that way, though the lock down did happen for a very good reason that protected the majority of consumers.  For that small subset of users that do overclock the newly announced 2.93GHz Core i7 875K and 3.2GHz i5 655K are a bright light on the horizon as both processors have unlocked multipliers.  See how that overclocking ability effects the price to performance ratio at The Tech Report.
