"Compeq" Celeron 300a
I bought a Celeron 300a SLW2M online that was guaranteed to o/c to 450Mhz (made in Costa Rica). However, I did notice the symbol "Compeq" it, and I remember reading something about how these chips tend to be the "bad" ones. Is this generally true, and I just happened to get one of the few Compeqs that o/c with stability? Thanks.
Hack-it/Try-it and see.
It won't harm it if you're sensible and OC the puppy in steps. You should aim for 450Mhz with adequate cooling, 3.5 * 100FSb at 2.2V
Run it @300 for a few days.
UP the voltage and higher FSB speeds for a few days with a desent workout like Prime95. Then lower the voltage and to see if owork. Then up the FSB speed and voltage again. Remember to keep it cool.

I'll take two... CPU's
The markings are a general rule of thumb. I do have a OEM Celeron 333 made in Costa Rica that does 500Mhz all day long on a P2B with 2.0v That aint supposed to happen either. I also have a Malay retail Celeron 300a that wont run at anything but 300Mhz, go figure?
