I have been playing with overclocking lately, and the generally accepted wisdom is that you can’t go higher than a ~5mhz crystal.   I came across this post on MacNN on the subject:


That guy Paul sure knows his stuff. :)

So 6mhz is right out.  Maybe modern flash memory on our new ROM board can run at higher clock rates and we could push the limits a little more on the overclocking.
