    1. PPGA refers to the form of the
    chip. in your case Pin grid array.
    2. Chips are good for overclocking in
    how well they can take increased
    front bus speeds. Celeron 366's
    can typically take the most bus
    speed increase. 400's can be
    increased to about 83 mhz. Each
    chip is individual though. Some might
    hit it, some won't. you just have
    to try and see. To overclock though,
    you'll probably want to put a better
    fan/cooler then the stock unit. over
    clocked chips typically generate more
    heat.
    3. In general, Malay chips are better
    for overclocking. your chip is from
    batch L9311076. that means it was
    a malay(L) chip from 1999 (9) and made
    in the 31st week. In general, the later
    a Celeron is in production week, the
    better. Yours should be pretty good.

    4. For more info, check out :
    www.overclockers.com or
    www.sharkyextreme.com and
    go to Celeron overclockers guide.


    Good luck
    This statement is a lie.
