"Introduction: I'm willing to bet that there are many hardware enthusiasts out there who have purchased 700MHz or higher Piii processors with the intention to overclock them, hoping to emulate reports of similarly clocked processors reaching speeds of 933MHz, but find themselves frustrated at being stuck at just a little over 800MHz. Most people when confronted with such a situation decide that they were simply unlucky, assuming that their processor must have been produced early on, or that their phillipino/malaysian/whatever processor would have definately cut it if it was made in Ireland or some other place, or even that they should have painted a pentagram on their computer and sacrificed three virgins before firing up the PC. In the days of 0.35 and perhaps 0.25 micron fabrication technologies, perhaps this line of thinking (sans the pentagram and virgins) might have been more or less occasionally valid, however with 0.18 micron technology being the standard nowadays, and the soon to come reduction to 0.13 microns, it just doesn't come down to luck or the quality of the FAB anymore. In fact you can find out a great deal about your processor's limitations and make a fairly accurate estimate of how far you will successfully overclock it before you even walk out of the store with it."
