Dear CPU Scorekeeper

How about adding overclocked scores? My Celeron 366@550MHz was a whole lot cheaper than a P3 550 and benchmarks at about the same.

Due to the numerous combinations of CPU voltages, bus speeds, and multiplier settings that can be configured for any given processor, detailing benchmark scores for each over-clocked setting would be a time-consuming and mostly irrelevant effort. As you have discovered, the speed of an over-clocked processor can be estimated simply by using our CPU Comparator. Just plug in both your existing and desired processor speeds to see the difference.

Note that your processor's tolerance for over-clocking will vary depending not only on its type, but the level of quality control achieved in the particular batch from which your CPU was cut. Celerons, for example, seem to withstand the additional stress better than most.

There is always a certain amount of risk that a CPU may be damaged when over-clocked, due to overheating and the increased voltages usually involved. If you must tinker, adjust your motherboard settings with great care, ensure adequate cooling, and shut down your system at the first sign of lock-up or other trouble.
