What was a really good plan turned into a grotesque mix of computer hardware, autoparts and fiberboards -- It had turned into what one of my lecturers used to refer to as "optical noise". This tutorial covers the improvements on my cooler.

Semiconductor Electromigration In-Depth
What is electromigration? A lot of people know that an increase of the bus speed gives you higher CPU speed, higher bandwidth on RAM, and in fact an overall increase in bandwidth of your other peripherals as well, but what happens to a chip when you overclock it, run it at over rated speeds and don't provide it with proper cooling? What are the long-term damages? This is what we'll cover in our electromigration in-depth analysis.
The Copper Story, The Story Behind the Copper Processors
When transistors are formed on a silicon wafer, traditional manufacturing methods join them in an electrical circuit by depositing tiny aluminum tracks between them. The semiconductor industry has used aluminum wiring on chips for over 30 years. The shrinking size of semiconductors has made aluminum more and more problematic, since it resists the flow of electricity, as wires are made ever thinner and narrower. Read the story behind the copper core processors.
Mahogany Wooden Case
As the need for a bigger case grew stronger and stronger, and especially with the upcoming modifications on the cooling equipment in mind, I found out that I had to do something.

Overclocking the Celeron 466 PPGA:
When it comes to overclocking processors, it seems like the Celeron is by far the most overclockable CPU. There are several reasons to this. Different plants also have higher success rates, with Malaysia producing the most stable Celerons available.
