Gripes: You could have a more detailed cpu information page. BOINC says I'm using a quadcore chip @ 2.40GHz when I'm running all cores @ 3.5GHz

Kudos: Keep up the good work i.e. server move/faster download of information.

Since some cores are now variable GHz even without overclocking them (like mine), I think it's best that they just classify them as the base core rate that the chips are advertised and sold at. I think I'm understanding that you have the quadcore 2.4 but you have it overclocked to 3.5?

They made the choice to list the default the default CPU info. Which is nice to have for comparison. The optimized apps record the actual CPU speed in stderr_txt.

     Speed: 1 x 3010 MHz 
     Cache: L1=64K L2=512K
  Features: MMX SSE SSE2 SSE3

Perhaps they will add that to the v7 SETI@Home applications.
