CPU burn-in, does it really work?

Heard of it a lot. So does it really help overclockability of a CPU?

Many guys will swear by it...
In my case, I don't think so.. I've built plenty of systems, plus I fold on all the machines in my house.. More than once, I've gone back and tried to push the CPU harder... never got much if anything. the only exception is my XP1600+, I got 80mhz more but that was the extra .1v, .

Sometimes it helps sometimes it doesn't. Even if the cpu can't be burned it if you're using thermal compounds such as Arctic Silver 3 then you should burn that in for it to take it's fully effect.
