Abit BX6-2 and Celeron 300A
I managed to dig out a OEM 300A today and work fine with my new BX6-2. So far(3 hrs) it is running at 450MHz without any glitch. I even use my TI PC66 SDRAM with 2 CAS! The core voltage is at 2.0V
The CPU is clover leaf with label 08471355 SL2WM from Costa Rica on back.
how exactly did you do this? I'm planning to get a 300a and maybe a bx6-2 mb. Did you do the o/c from bios via changing the cmos settings or did you have to open up the case and change the jumpers on the mb? What bios do you have? Details would be great - much appreciated (and congrats with your o/c have fun). How much was your new mb?
The board was $110. OEM CPU is around $80. Some shop sells it at $74 to $77. The Abit BX6-2 provide a lot of control in BIOS soft menu. No jumper is needed. These include core voltage, clock multiplier and frequency. It is a good board. See the review of this board in this site.
I bought the 2 300A at Frys Electronics and both are good for OC to 450Mhz. I am planning to get another BX6-2 board for my daughter. I was thinking to return the extra one but since some unscrupulous reseller are asking for $110 and $120 for OEM and retail box CPU I decided to keep it. The other CPU code is 09050274 SL2WM Costa Rica, 9849 NM2 94V-0 Clover leave diagram in front.
Anything that is close to these 2 CPU codes may have a chance for OC to 450Mhz.
