 The FrankenCooler II, the Return of the Beast

I started out with a Celeron II 566 and bumped it up to 1GHz right away, as I knew it would handle that. The corevoltage was 1.75V. But I wanted more...much more, so I increased the corevoltage to 2.1V and started increasing the FSB, step by step all the way up to 133MHz. It ran flawlessly at 1100MHz, but I had to get a 100% overclock, right?

Well, at 1133MHz, the CPU ran for a few hours at full load, and then just stopped. It was dead. I suspect that this was a case of, ironically, electromigration, and because of that I don't have any screenshots with the CPU above 1GHz.

As a replacement for the 566, I got a Celeron 700ES (Engineering Sample) that was pretested to 1050MHz with a retail Intel cooler, so there was a potential for a 1.2 - 1.3GHz overclock here. Strangely enough, this CPU wouldn't overclock to anything higher than 1050, no matter what I did. Very frustrating indeed.
