I have overclocked my old 1.5ghz P4 rig before it was used for folding.

I wanted to overclock it again now that I have been folding it for a couple months at stock speeds.

I have heard that overclocking a folding rig will screw up my work unit points. Is this true?

I dont want to turn in partial WUs for nothing.

It won't affect your wu's if it's stable. After you overclock it run something like SiSoft Sandra Burn, or loop 3D Benchmark and make sure it's stable and running cool and it will be ok.

it shouldn't affect the work, provided it's stable.
