Everest just calculates the % overclock by doing simple math:


CPU FSB209.98 MHz (original: 200 MHz, overclock: 5%)

209.98/200 = 1.05

You could do it yourself. Everest rounds off the % to the nearest whole number.

As for the other info, it's probably as accurate as it can be. It uses its sources available: It takes a lot of the data from your Bios (voltages, clock speeds) and some of it directly from your hardware (thermal diode on your hard drive, video card). Some of it is found on your hard drive (driver version, XP Vesion, service pack, DirectX info, etc).

Cheers,

Just apply the math that Niklas has provided you with and see if it's close.
