setting up dual processor system using celerons...
i was wanting to try this out, but i need to look for the parts. anybody have success in finding some retail celery's that are overclockable?
Consider Celeron 370 version. CPU Central has dealer that will pre-wire an MSI MS-6905 socket 370 converter board for dual CPU.
The company mentioned is at http://www.censuspc.com/ .
i read the article, sounds interesting, i wouldn't mind buying some already wired boards, but i would also like trying that for myself. are you familiar with dual processors? i was under the impression that the stepping levels had to be the same. you could call intel to find which one's match, oem and retail. would i need two ppga's? the site over in japan has a socket 1 and a 370. anyhow, about looking for those 370's that might be overclockable, any suggestions? the craze has been on getting those retail sl32a's, even the boxed oem's, so i'm finding some guarantees on oc.
The 300A is probably the most overclockable Celeron around. The dual Celeron using one PPGA & one Slot 1 Celeron 300A was a success even though the stepping was not the same.
Play it safe, get two Celeron with the same stepping & spec #. That way, you will lessen the probability of failure. Remember, in dual celeron, you are not simply overclocking both cpu at a higher speed. You are also defeating a design limitation - Celerons were not meant to be used for dual cpu systems.
The nice thing about using the socket 370 for use on a dual mobo system is that there is not the danger that you will not be able to use the processor if you damage the card
during the modification process. If you screw up with a slocket card you can just buy another card for 20-30 dollars and use the same processor, but if you screw up a slot 1 celery then you have to buy another slot 1 celery 70-90 dollars.
thanks guys...i just snagged a pair of those. i'm gonna try a dual proc system, linux or nt, maybe both. i'll let you know how that goes, but i won't be getting a case and other stuff for some time, but i'll be sure to post how it goes...
i was just wondering if you guys were aware of a good mb for dual cpu's that i could overclock safely...
or if you need more volts,
the only dual I know of that has a voltage adjustment is over $300.00
