Overclockin.com heeft een verslag gepost van een Celeron 300a (SL36A week 27) die ze op 600MHz hebben draaien. Dit met behulp van een Abit BX6-2, GlobalWin FDP-32 Socket heatsink en een MSI-6905 v1.1 Socket370/Slot1 adapter card. Het zaakie loopt op 2.2 volt stabiel op 600MHz...
After I warmed everything up at a modest (he says with tongue firmly planted in cheek) 558MHz @ 2.0V with no problems, I kicked it up to 580MHz @ 2.0V. Since I was told the processor was stable at 580MHz and 2.10V, I was hopeful that it would work at this voltage and I was not disappointed. It just ran and ran. Amazing stuff from a processor rated at 300MHz!!!
With the processor able to run 580MHz @ 2.0V, there was no way I was stopping there. I rebooted, set the bus speed to 133MHz and started things back up again. Things looked promising. Windows 98 loaded fully and I started up SiSoft Sandra. But it was not to be. The machine froze. How about at 2.10V?? Still no go. It got into Windows, but got exception errors. Well, let's try 2.20V... Hey, this is looking good. Loaded Windows, started Unreal, ran 20 loops in software mode!!! Sweet!!! But is it really stable at 600MHz??? You bet it is. Two hours and ten minutes (and 150 loops of software mode Unreal) it was still running with no problems. I just had to give 621MHz (138MHz FSB) a shot and bumped it up to 2.3V and rebooted. I could get all the way into Windows and even run some of the SiSoft Sandra benchmarks before the system would lock up. Oh well, I guess I shouldn't complain.... :-)
This is truly amazing performance from a Celeron 300a processor. Just to prove that the processor was running at those speeds, here are a few screenshots:
