CPU On-Board: Intel Celeron 220

Intel’s D201GLY2 motherboard comes with an Intel Celeron 220 CPU soldered directly onto the board. This single-core processor uses the Conroe-L design, based on the 65 nm Conroe architecture.

The Celeron 220 is the successor to the Yonah-based Celeron 215. Intel used this part on its previous D201GLY board.

Like all of Intel’s Celeron models, the 220 does not possess the SpeedStep power saving feature. The CPU is also not sold separately.

Since the BIOS does not offer any FSB speed controls, overclocking through bus speed manipulation is not an option. Our review board used the ICS 9LPR604AFLF clock generator; other versions use the 9LPR604AGLF that can be adjusted using software tools. This, unfortunately, did not work on our board.
