You can keep them at 500MHz or whenever you feel like it you can click on SoftFSB icon and raise FSB to 75MHz(562.5MHz). A C500 has better than a 90% chance of going 562 stable. You might not even need a big heatsink to do it. If you plan to use this machine for actual work(can't imagine that) then you really don't want a pair of 366's clocked all the way to 550. Besides, a guaranteed C366@550 costs as much as a C500. Even if you leave it at 500MHz, its a powerful system. Rainbow Six brings up another option, a fast single CPU would likely be just as good as two slower duals. You won't see a doubling of performance using 2 CPU's, you might get 40% more adding a second CPU. So, using that formula and taking the Celeron's default speed of 500MHz multiplied by 140% (500x1.4) the result would be equal to a 700MHz single CPU. This doesn't take into account any benefit you will see with multi-threaded apps on a dual machine. It will depend on how well your programs take advantage of 2 processors. Don't misunderstand me, you don't need to have any special software to use dual processors. The OS provides the MPS(dual)support, all programs can utilize both processors. But some programs are purposely optimized for dual cpu applications. Uh, they make a C533, too.

Cool thanks for the Help.
I think Ill probarly end up getting a couple of C500's at normal speed. Cos I dont want to have too much temprature problems if I leave my system on for a couple of days in a row.
My room/workshop/lab gets hot enough with all the other crap I got jamed in it.
