What is the difference between celeron and celeron PPGA?
What is the difference between a Celeron 400 and a Celeron 400 PPGA? Is one just a socket 370?
Other than the socket/slot, the SL32A is step 0, and the SL35Q (the socket 370 Retail Box version of the 300A)is step 5!
If you check the old posts on Celery 266, the first step 0 versions had trouble OCing, while the step 1 easly went to 400, 448, and even higher (it was the Dechutes core from a PII 400, but with NO L2 cache to worry about!)
I've recieved both the CPU and an Abit BM6 motherboard, but won't start to assemble till tonight -so can't swear to (or at) anything yet.
I'll try to post here and elsewhere as to my luck, but also check HardOCP, as they are testing BM6 with 300, 366, and 400 Celerions. There review SHOULD be up this weekend.
just did a 300A retail (SL35Q) Socket 370 on an Abit BM6 (great board, but "crappy" name!).
I'm getting 473Mhz at 2.0 volts.
Cheep to buy too; about $70 to $80 for CPU and $100 to $110 for MOBO.
In other words, as good or better than slot one SL32A (no longer available) on Abit BH6.
Get one while you can! Sooner or later others will figure it out!
Shuttle has a stable one out also
the 681. 366 at 458 and no real way to go higher but,
$95.00 for the chip and $80.00 for the board makes a cheap 450 box.
It also gives you the option to upgrade when the 466 celerons come out.
Right now I runing tests whit my friends celeron 266 at 496 MHz 2,1V.It work whit prime 95 at max 56*C
I think the problem of PPGA processors is that the heatsinks are smaller than slot1 heatsinks and you can attach 3 or even more fans on slot1,on socket370 only 1.
