Processor overclocking techniques are disclosed. Upon automatically determining (310) that overclocking entry criteria are satisfied, one or more cores (230) are clocked (320) above their standard operation frequencies. The cores (230) may be overclocked until one or more exit criteria are satisfied (330). At that point, an exit procedure is performed (340), with the one or more overclocked cores (230) return to their normal operating frequency.
