Overclocking Celeron 333 w/ ABIT BH6

I want to overclock my old Celeron system :

Slot1 Celeron 333MHz with original FAN
ABIT BH6
256MB PC-133 RAM (one stick)
6 GB HD ATA-66

I now a little bit about overclocking, but i have never done it.

should I move the FSB step by step or just set it to 100MHz.
What about the voltage?

I now 100MHz is OK with the mobo, but what about the CPU ?

WHAT ABOUT HEATING ??? OR BURNING ????

I NEED SOME HELP !!!!!

Thanks


One more thing:

I also got a PII-350 from my friend. I can use the SEL100/66# in the mobo to unlock it and set it to
4.5x100=450 or even 4.5x112=504.

Now which one is faster (AND easier):

Celeron 333 @ 100x5=500
P II 350 @ 4.5x100=450 or 4.5x122= 504.

That's some stuff !!!

You have the BH6, that means you don't need to "unlock" the FSB with those pins. For the Celeron, I'd try rasing the core voltage by .2v and setting it at 100MHz bus. For the PIII I'd suggest setting the bus to 133MHz. You can't "unlock" the multiplier, so unless you have an unlocked CPU (not common), you'll be stuck at 3.5x, that gives you 466.6MHz (might be too far for the off-die cache). Then again, you could try 125MHz bus if 133 doesn't work.

BTW, did you know that your board will, with the latest BIOS upgrades, support a Celeron 1400 and $20 Slot-T adapter?

It is a Pentium 2 @ 350.
AND YES u can UNLOCK it.

So i should change the voltage to 2.2v and change the FSB to 100MHZ.

Thanks

Hey, a celeron 1.4 !!!!!! (not in my budget :(  )

OK, it's possible that the PII was locked differently than the PIII, but anyway, yes, I suggest 2.2v and 100MHz. Because Slot A AThlons used the same style cooler, you can actually get huge coolers for PII's on the cheap, if needed.

Should i try the celeron with 2.1v first then 2.2v ???

And if i use the multiplier to oc the P2, should i change the voltage ??

<A HREF="http://www.strattoncomputer.com/" target="_new">http://www.strattoncomputer.com/&lt;/A> I had my Celeron 1.1GHz turned up to 1466MHz/133 bus, but found that Rev. 1.02 of the board does not support a 1/4 PCI divider, and my SCSI card didn't like the 45MHz bus speed provided with the 1/3 PCI divider. A lower bus speed would be perfect, the Celerons come with a 100MHz stock clock which is perfect for the 1/3 PCI divider. In fact bus speeds up to ~125MHz should be OK for this board and most cards.
