Rumors say that some P3-500 actually are P3-800. How can I find out that my P3-500 is a P3-800?

ovrclock it a step at a time until it wont run then try to up the voltage to get it to run stable
it is really a hit and miss on overclocking because two identicle systems can perform dramatically different when overclocked
