But one of my original questions still wasn't answered.. what happens if you were to use a multplier higher than what the cpu is rated at... would it damage it?
The CPU will not accept a higher multiplier than stock.

That's the difference between the "uber" procs and those for us normal folks.... the highest end chips do not have their multipliers locked to prevent them from being raised, while the lower end ones only allow you to drop the multiplier downwards.
