Well, I read that overclockers have to increase the core voltage to ensure
that the processor can get enough power. It struck me that if a suitably
cooled processor can stand +10% core voltage then the Harris ACB at
1.8v might still work (all be it at an "unsupported" non-spec way).

Well, perhaps after I've upgraded! - Though I was just asking in case anyone
else had already given it a go.
