Hi there-I have this cpu laying around and some time to blow so I was
wondering if this will o'clock to start.if so to what and if i put it on a
slot 1 w/slotkit will that go higher or at all? so slot 1 board or socket
370 board? and what to expect,oh and type of ram and min. amount.
thanks guys! Kevin firstname.lastname@example.org
Re: cely 600 socket 370
Motherboards from that era do not have AGP/PCI locking so the technique was
to pick a Celeron that would overclock from the standard 66 MHz FSB to 100
Mhz FSB so the PCI/AGP multipliers would be standard then, perhaps, raise
the FSB some nominal amount from there.
The slam dunk model was a 533A (not the PPGA 533), going to 800 MHz, and
the 566 to 850 MHz was almost as assured (mine overclocked to 1020). A
Celeron 600 might make it but it depends on the particular one. Some will
do 900 and others will not and, in general, those of later manufacture have
a better chance than the earlier ones. An increase in Vcore is generally
If the motherboard has a rich suite of overclocking features then a socket
370 is probably best. On the other hand, a decent slotket provides jumpers
for forcing the FSB to 100 MHz and altering Vcore selection on slot-1
boards that don't include BIOS settings (the alternate on a socket 370
being to wrap/jumper/break-off processor pins, or on the socket, manually).
If you're just slapping something together then cost might be a big
consideration and slot-1 boards are probably less expensive. Generally I'd
look for a BX chipset board (usually 3 mem slots and max 768 meg) but,
again, from the cost standpoint an 810E (max 2 mem slots and 512 Meg), or
even better an 815E, has built in video so the cost might be less depending
on the initial cost of the board (the built-in video is low in 3D
performance and there are plenty of very cheap AGP boards that can match it).
None of the Intel chipsets will accept the lower cost "high density" 256
Meg memory modules, which makes the memory rather expensive.
