@ BIOS, i've overclocked the CPU by 33% from 2.8Hz -> 1.33 x 2.*8 = 3.7GHz.

Then you are totally on your own, sorry.

True, but we should still be reporting the real speed if the hardware does.

To the original poster: In an environment that is based around sharing
and open standards, anonymous emails don't encourage people to respond
favorably.

To answer your other question: even if the tool reported your CPU speed
accurately, any problems you report with that configuration will be
ignored. The hardware would be operating out of spec and any guarantees
that the software would be operating properly go right out the window.
