Could Use Some Advice......
I'm new to this neck of the Web as well as being new to "Overclocking". I just finished building my first machine (previous were 233AMD K6 2 and HP 633 cel) using the cpu from the HP.
Here are the specs:
Celeron 633 II
Abit SA6R mobo w/Sot Touch 3 bios
I do hope to upgrade cpu in the future but for now I'd like to squeeze some more out of this one and still be on the "stable" side. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

1. You need a good H/S fan to O/C, if you've got a retail version, ditch it and pick up an Alpha PAL35T for $30.
2. When you've got that, increase the core voltage to 1.85V or so and go for it. You can't change the multiplier on Intel CPUs, so up the FSB to 90 MHz. That'll get you to 855 MHz which should be reachable.
3. Then try for more, a couple of MHz at a time. Don't be afraid to go as high as 1.95V on the core setting (if your mobo lets you) as long as the Alpha keeps the temp below 40C max. It shouldn't idle higher than 30C with an Alpha on it.
