Bear with me on this post please as I am not yet a hardcore O/C. Up till now just basic CPU stuff. Sorry for the length as well.

I have a project for school that requires one to be creative and unique. SO i decide to do an extreme overclock. No one else has ever done it in my school, so bonus points for me:)

The question I have is of Mobo choice. I am looking at either Abit VH6T or ST6 or ASUS TUA266. I am going with a Celeron 1 gig with the .13 micron. I can get the parts cheap through a wholesaler and since I am doing percent increase CPU speed and not total, I dont need a p4. I know all the logistics of O/C such as FSB and Core V, but have read that the Abit boards only allow about 1.75 on voltage before they flake out. I know the ASUS goes to 3.5 or so ( I know I will never need that.)

I plan to do like the guys in Finland did with the 2.2 p4 and put a copper bowl of liquid nitrogen ontop of the processor and maybe the chipset to keep it all cool.(and to add a nice fog effect:))Will I need the extra volts from the ASUS? Is the ASUS as easy to O/C as the Abit? What results can be predicted?

As i said, I know the logistics and what needs to happen. I am just unsure of the best hardware choice.
