    Which Celeron and what cooling.....

    I'm upgrading a system for my buddy and want to knwo what Celery will work on his board. It is a PC Chips 741LMR I believe. It currently has a Celery 533 but the board supports 100FSB speeds and has 8x multiplier. Can it take an 800?
    I can't find answers on the PC Chips website, it only list up to Celery 500 but I know it will take higher. Anyone running this board? Also, if I go to a Celeron 800, what heatsink is best to use?

    The board will take a slot/slocket/socket so if you have another CPU suggestion, let me know.....
    How would a P3-500 compare vs. the Celery 800? The 800 is cheaper, but would the added perofrmance of the P3 overcome the mhz difference?

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm not familiar with that mobo, but since the Celeron is multiplier-locked, the multiplier setting on the mobo has no affect. You should be able to change the FSB to 100, and it should be good for 800 with the stock HFS. I don't know if you can adjust the CPU voltage on that board, or whether it is a very o/c'able mobo. But it won't hurt to try. The Cely @ 800 should be faster than the PIII-500...
