    The northbridge being responsible for this doesn't seem plausible to me. The northbridge does not care for the CPU clock rate at all. It runs at the same clock rate no matter the CPU clock rate.

    Is it a given that 11x is the highest possible multiplier? After all, the 5 binary digits of the PLL config can theoretically represent 32 different numbers, and with 0.5 steps this could amount to a 2.07 GHz range.


    maybe, I don't know and have no way how to test it. Higher frequencies then 1.333 makes memory error.
    Of course, It can be done on processor side. But also some synchro issues on northbridge.

    yes, in theory 5 pin = 32 possibilites.
    But if I see the table obr-3.jpg I have no idea how exact set higher frequencies.
    And for sure, I will try such things only with spare Pegasos or at least spare CPU card.
