I think INTEL already locked the CPU.U cant O/C.
Althought u can o/c it also wouldnt faster than p4.
Especially the cache is smaller. I think only 256k.

you could've bought a p4 at 2.4 ghz and it still would have been faster than your celeron. in fact, that's what you should do, try pawning off your celeron on some unsuspecting friend. celeron performance is terrible due to the smaller size of the cache, meaning that you will not get the same amount of performance for each MHz you have. Celerons are sloooow, regardless of clock speed, and although you could overclock it, it would not yield much in terms of performance. good luck.
