Well im a robotics Engineer in India by profession so I dabble in a lotta Linux Low Level stuff... We had ordered an experimental robotic base some time ago for a project and the on board computer was running on a UNIX base. It was slow so I tried to OC it. No luck because I Was a cpl of layers of abstraction above the OS. Stepped down one layer and yup installed the assembly compiler onto the Robot to be able to code in assembly direct... Got Pretty stable on that with an OC of like 40%.
A cpl of months ago i was down sick with herpies at my apartment.... (three guesses how i got them ;-) ) Had an Intel Rig lying around so decided what the hell..... It took around a week of scripting and several crashes to get into Vcore...... but i got there.... Vdroop was still an issue but managed to tackle that with loosening RAM timings....
the only problem i have is that i have to execute a whopper of a Hex file every time i boot to get everything running... I'm on AIR cooling .... CPU started throttling so i just got a toolkit ... Drilled huge holes in some places in the cabinet after some elementary fluid mech calculations and installed another 80mm fan in there... temperatures were down to 35 idle and 55 loaded at 3.24 with RAM somewhere at 5-5-5-18...
but still its a bad idea that i wouldnt recommend to ppl ..... even after all that trouble i still experience the odd random crash or two....
