It's just a lot better to use the bios.
Yeah, if you are looking to create a 24/7 OC, of course BIOS is better, but for people doing this type of OC, they use clockgen all the time. It is just way more practicle for this type of OC'ing. I see a lot of 'high horse' comments about windows overclocking programs. They have there place.

plus that was CPU-Z or something which I don't think will show you your speed until after you've reopened it
The voltage thing does seem wierd, but CPU-z will adjust as you up the FSB with something like clockgen. Each time you hit 'apply' or whatever it is in clockgen, CPU-z adjusts to the new CPU and FSB speed in real time.

There are cases like where fugger got 7GHz but was only in the BIOS, but liquid nitrogen is fine.
Old news Some Japanese guy got alomst 7.5Ghz SUPER_PI STABLE!

well I was just making the point of people getting acknowledged for records not necessarily being stable in windows although that generally isn't acknowleged. But it also helps that he's really famous in the OC'ing world as it is That's a pretty crazy OC though, on a prescott no less

I don't like the idea of overclocking in windows. Just use the BIOS. And BTW, the CPU can take the cold just fine, but some steppings like it better than others. Somebody got an FX-55 to 4GHz:
so, umm, err yeah
