Video Frame Rate (>60fps?)

I've had my Canon PowerShot A560 for awhile now, and upon originally equipping it with the CHDK, I had hoped to somehow raise the rate at which it could capture video, with all disregard for image resolution or quality. I knew and still know of ways to boost the camera's CPU clock speed to assist in achieving 90-240 fps, but I don't want to risk getting greedy and burning out the CPU. I'm looking for someone who can help me find a way to use CHDK scripts to up an equipped camera's video capture frame rate, or tell me how and that it is impossible. In the meantime, I will be trying to get an at least tenuous grasp on general-purpose coding in the CHDK.

On a personal note, my camera's warranty expired YEARS ago! XD Then again, it IS the only one I have/can afford to have at the moment.

All replies are appreciated, thank you!  ;)
Nothing in life is easy or fair, but if you look hard enough, you'll always find that somehow, every ounce of effort you put into anything is always at least worth it to someone, somewhere. ;)

Please describe how this is done, it sounds very interesting.

If it's possible, we don't currently know how to do it. My gut feeling is that it is very unlikely for the hardware to have that much headroom.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
