P4 2.4B Northwood

P4 2.4B Northwood is my next overclocker...donated from an ibm.

the first thing is that i have not had my hands on an actual "ibm" pc in a while, and boy, have they ever got a snazzy tool-less case...the drive bays pull up from the top...the top pulls off from 2 buttons to give access to everything. the drive cradles pull completely out if you like.....
i am completely amazed at how well this case is made for something that generally would not see alot of servicing in a normal use situation. I like the case so much that i think that i will kepp it.. even though it may mean limiting my self to an micro atx board.

the default bus speed is 533 mhz, or 133 x 4....with a 18x multi @ 1.5v
hopefully i should get an 800mhz jump in speed...but that remains to be seen. of course i won't stop until i get there.

I am currently shopping for mobo's..any suggestions would be appreciated.

so now i have tried a few other cpu id programs. and i get differing results...some say that it is a b, but cpu-z says it's a 2.4d..meaning that it's a mobile....any suggestions?
i'm NOT ready to pull the proc just yet

I'm building a shuttle for a friend, let me know if you decide to sell.

so here's a pic of the proc....i get 0f29 or 15 2 9 for cpuid.
i dunno what to make of it for sure, as there is no voltage stamping. As far as my research has told me, they changed the stamping to not have the voltage last year, and the proc is dated for 01. i don't have a board that will allow me to overclock it yet, so i can't be sure exactly what it is.
it's been a long time since i have tried to overclock a pentium....(last one was a pII 266)
any suggestions for boards?

AI7 is popular... I just ordered on for my very first P4 system... I got sick and tired looking for my next upgrade and decided to see what massive memory bandwidth was good for. I'm hoping for 240+ dual channel.
