uhm ... be careful processors have a specific fsb that they are
designed for. For early Celerons like yours that's 66 mhz.
And you could run into problems with your RAM if it only supports 66mhz.
I looked through your manual and I think you can't really go any higher
without doing anything that could be considered overclocking *shrug*.
You could for example up your fsb to 75 mhz but your memory and
everything else may not like it. Don't blame me if you blow up your
I've found an interesting table that says that they don't even recommend
running your cpu on that board. :) (probably just means that you won't
get full speed out of it)
