Overclocking Celeron
Could I get a Celeron D 2.8ghz up to 3.0ghz with stock cooling and without raising the voltage?

I do not see a reason why you cannot. I got my p4 2.66 to 3.0.

You could prob go to 3.2Ghz if u raised the Vcore a notch. What temps u got at stock clock?

I dont want to go that high. I think will just raise the FSB and stepping just enough to get it to 3ghz and leave the voltage where its at. Then Ill use the stock HSF.

Sound good?

Sounds good to me

i just found this:

There have been situations in which a chip manufacturer will deliberately underrate a chip in response to market pressure. This results in an inexpensive component that (with a little extra voltage) is easily overclocked to match the speed of a more expensive component. One example is the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ (codename Toledo) processor, which was easily made as fast as the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+, simply by increasing the voltage and clock speeds. Manufacturers will often sell these processors at 50% extra. Users can often easily overclock a component to above the highest settings a manufacturer will sell a component for.
Recently computer experts experimented with a Pentium 4 3.4 GHz HT processor, cooling it using liquid nitrogen, and blowing cold air at high speeds past it. They managed to achieve over 3 GHz above the original frequency, which is a considerable amount. Few users would tolerate regularly topping off their computer with liquid nitrogen, the noise alone of such a system making it impractical. These tests are interesting, however, as an illustration of what is possible when great amounts of heat can be removed from a system and are an indication of what could be achieved with better (but not as drastic) cooling.

So dont be scared of overclocking it some.

Thanx for all the help.

i was able to overclock my celeron from 2.5 to 2.8 by raising the the voltage a little, I don't remember exactly how much, but got it working completely stable, I actually got working at 2.9 stable, but I also had a Arctic Cooling 4, a 120mm case fan right behind it, and raised the voltage a little more. Had 58C temps under load. But I should tell you that it was wintertime and it was super cold in my house, my case temp was only 67-69C most days. Had to bring it back down when March came around :D

Now that I think about it, it was wamer in my case then my house :)
