Sharky Extreme heeft een hele dikke Celeron Overclocking Guide in elkaar geknutseld.
Errug handig voor C300A overklokkers die hun CPUutje niet op 450 krijgen (en dat zijn er nog al veel, mag ik uit postings op het MS.Nepwereld forum herleiden).
Hier een stukkie over waarom de Celeron zo lekker te oc-en is:
There are some dramatic effects concerning overclocking that Intel's cost cutting on the Celeron has created:
Without any external L2 cache, the Celeron's core was the only part that a buyer has to worry about when overclocking to high MHz levels. In the Pentium 2 line, an overclocker has to worry not only about the Klamath/Deschutes core quality, but also about the two or four (depending upon the model) L2 cache chips located in the Pentium 2's SEC cartridge. Since Intel has specifically matched the right speed L2 SRAM chips to the particular core they'll be mated to, the potential for the L2 cache to hold back the true overclocking potential of the core was great. This is not so in the Celeron, as again there isn't any external L2 cache to worry about. Instead the 128KB of L2 Celeron A cache is located on the die itself. It's virtually a part of the core, which means that if the yields are right, then almost every Celeron A coming down the pike is overclockable. By taking the Celeron core and mounting it on a standard PCB wafer, overclockers could once again mount a high powered fan/heatsink directly on the surface covering of the core itself, instead of having to put up with the poor heat dissipation qualities of the P2's SEC Cartridge. This means that the fan/heatsink would be able to perform its job better, and eliminate more heat that in the covered and blocked Pentium 2 line, which leads to better overclocking. This comes in very handy with the Celeron A CPUs, as there are some seriously capable cooling fans from both ComputerNerd and Net-N-Dude available online.
