Shit no, don't do this. The only fix is to run the cpu at it's rated
speed and voltage.

I could never understand people that try to squeeze a usually
insignificant (say 10%) processor performance increase when in the
majority of cases other bottle necks usually dominate speed.

Ever heard of hot spots, and the Arrhenius relationship?
