    Celeron 800

    My Mobo can go to a bus speed of 133, how hard do you think it would be to overclock this one to 1064 (133x8) If I am not mistakened, it is set at the factory at (100x8) right...? Just curious.

    Thanx

    Shouldnt be that hard, as long as u have PC-133 Ram just bump up the FSB and it should be sweet, everything will be in spec anyway.

    You just need adequate cooling. Are you using a stock heatsink and fan? Most successful overclocks are done with better cooling. You can get after-market cooling gear from almost anywhere.

    Here is one example: www.coldcpu.com

    Look for the section that supports your current processor type.

    Good luck!

    Obviously it depends on the individual chip you get, but the likelihood of reaching 133 with an 800 is better than with any of the faster chips. I am running my 900 at 1.08 with a 120 Mhz front side bus and it is stable with factory heatsink and fan. One of these days, I will have to pick up a better cooler and see if I can get it any higher with stability. I could not get it to post at 133 @ 1.85 volts and I did not want to try it any higher with stock cooling. I am still very happy with it at 1.08 for the $45 + $7 shipping it cost me.

    Thanx Guys,

    I was just curious, It has a 440bx chipset.. I beleive that is right... Never really worked with it before... It has a Slot 1 with a Slotkit. That doesn't matter does it???

    Thanx

    In my second machine I'm running a celeron 850/slot adapter on a abit BF6
    Stock fan heatsink, 64 & 128 sticks of pc100

    Currently at 1133 (8.5 x 133) without any hiccups. (mind you i'm at 2.0v)

    should be a very acheivable OC for you.

    I got a celly 850 too. It's running at 1133MHz/1.85V with no problem, stock sink and fan, temp is about 50C idle. I ran the sandra CPU benchmark, drystone beats P4 1.5G!(What's going on with P4?). The mobo is ASUS P3B-F. Memory benchmark is kinda low, 300+ range. Unfortunately this mobo(and a couple other asus boards) has a bug affecting photoshop users. see: http://213.219.40.69/11040101.htm
