They do seem to be very good overclockers, I've worked with 2 that both did 3.6ghz no problem and most people have the same luck from what I've read, with stock cooling and little or no extra voltage.
I'm currently running mine at 1.8ghz/0.975V though and at this setting it needs very little cooling

On stock cooling? that sounds good iv'e never played around with cpu overclocking before though, only a few graphics cards so far. 2.4 is going to crap on what i have right now but if i could get to 3.6 id be laughing.

The beauty of a 2.4 celery is that it is running 18 x 133.33. Getting a mobo that can do 200 fsb will result in 18 x 200 = 3600 .

Just about any decent socket 478 i865 mobo will get you there easily.

As long as it supports overclocking otherwise it's some fiddly pin shorting and insulating to get the 800mhz fsb
at 3.6ghz the celeron performs rouchly in line with a 3.0-3.2ghz P4, not bad for a chip thats half to a third the price

I'll say! I remember im pretty sure this exact board on the qld version of the site(nsw and qld store(s) are seperate with no communication between the two) it had some overclocking features apperently but im not sure it is the exact board.

as long as it allows the selection of bus speeds and ignoring bsel pins you're sorted
