The best dual Celeron mobo is the Abit BP6 without question. As for the 366/400/466 option, only you can decide. The guaranteed 366s are a little pricey and will require an good heatsink/fan. On the other hand, you can get a retail 466 for only $84 and it's a cinch to get to 525 MHz with the FSB set to 75 MHz. And if you add the better heatsink/fan you'd need with the 366 to 500 guaranteed setup, you'll have a chance at 581 MHz or higher with all those BP6 FSBs. So with the cheap price of the 466s, that would be my recommendation especially if 525 MHz seems good enough to you for only $84.
I also have 2 31W Peltiers, I was thinking I could couple these directly to the CPU's and then direct water cool them with waterblocks, how do you think this would work?
I tried with w/cooling and the peltiers before, but the peltiers were not direct water cooled and the CPU running temp was higher than with a h/sink and fan. I think the direct w/cooling might stop the peltiers from overheating, what do you reccon??
Do you guys know if the ABIT BP6 will run with just 1 Celery in it or does it have to have 2 in it?? Not that the price of Celerons is too high! I was justr wondering if the motherboard still functions with one CPU?
I'm currently runnning my Celeron466@602 stable (86MHz FSB). Boots fine to Win at 616, boots sometimes at 644(yep!).
Thing is, at 616 the CPU-temp at idle is 25C, and when enabling CpuIdle the temps drops to 5-8C. If I just could make the temps stable at 5C or below, I'm pretty sure I could make it run stably at 644<grin>, which then would allow me to use the 1/3-devider of the FSB, cause these high FSB's gives my hdd's a hard time.
Thats the problems you have to deal with when OC'ing the 466<600
...oh, did I just hear anybody mention watercooling???
