Default OLPC XO Hacks: Overclocking an XO Laptop Geode LX 700 CPU

One major complaint about One Laptop Per Child's XO laptop, is the speed of its Geode LX 700 CPU that runs at 433mhz. Most experienced computer users find it a little slow, and often compare it to computing in the late 90's.

On the other hand, OLPC's target market, children in the developing world who don't have a Dell or Xbox for comparison, don't seem to mind.

Still, for the serious geek, there is an easy fix for a slow processor: overclocking. That is making the processor run faster than it's designed to do. Now, thanks to bdleonard on OLPC News XO Hacks Forum, we have directions on how to overclock your XO laptop
