A project log for Voyage 200 Upgrades

Following up with nearly a decade old thread about overclocking TI's V200 with a bit of a twist

After fighting with Amazon for not knowing how to count to 10 whilst stopping at 1, seriously, I now have some ground springs for my low capacitance probe that I'm using for measurements. It is only 100x, not 10x, but for what I do, I don't mostly need a 10x probe. Anyhow, now that these are in, I have the tools for executing the upgrades.

That, and I have the series of capacitors and resistors I ordered. However, due to car work since I'm my own mechanic and waiting for the arrival of those parts along with DMV drudgery, it may be a week or so before I have initial overclock results. I'm eager to see what assumptions are true, or more importantly false, and lead to some finite data.

I have an ultrasonic cleaner that I need to fix as it blew a fuse and a transistor for its LEDs when I connected what looked like ground to the ground clip on the probe. Looks like its polarities are flipped. DMM is going up next to to figure out how the hell this thing is wired. Either way, it's taking up space on the counter I need for calculator hacking and I don't have as much free time as I'd like right now.
