It is possible to tweak the clock but I think you shouldn't do that. Even if
the CPU would run stable at 600MHz (it is a poor overclocker) the performance
gain would be minor, but it would be dangerous to the health of the CPU.
IMHO overclocking is a playground for Windows/PC users, who don't care to
burn their crappy Celerons into ashes but a bad practice with precious
DEC workstations.
