I guess this was raised a pair of months ago, but I didn't see an
authoritative reply. Exactly, how dangerous are overclocking/overtiming if
the validity of rc5 results is concerned? My P6-200 runs pretty stable at
233, and I think that's safe (there's a good fan with alarm). However, I've
been playing with memory and my system occasionally locks up (oh joy ;).
99% of processor time are devoted to rc5 (24/7). What is the probability of
getting a wrong key instead of a crashed client/wps/system?
