On many of the P2 Deschutes you could change the latency of the cache in clocks, in order to get some boost(often substancial) in cached apps. like office or photo editing or Prime95(smaller ffts could fit in the 512 L2 cache) I believe the default was 12 clocks latency, but most could run 4.
On the mendocino celerons(not the covington, as they were only Deschutes without any L2 cache) the default was 7 but most could run at 2 or even 1 clock(as they were the first mass produced full speed on die cache processors)you could probbably find the program on the net somewhere to change the P2/celeron cache latency. I think it was called Wcpul2 or similar.
