I want to up the FSB on my Celeron 766 to 100 MHz, what do i need?
I'm new to overclocking so any advice would be appreciated.

I much doubt you will run at a 100mhz fsb with air cooling, you would need a really good peltier with water cooling, it isn't economical cooling celerons with peltiers as if you got to 1.1ghz it would only be about as fast as a 900mhz p3, and you could get a p3 700 and over clock it to 933mhz-1ghz+ for less money that would out perform it and be less work

But my BX mobo dont support setting of PCI divider, so all of my PCI cards probably wont work @ 133 MHz FSB with P3 700.
Besides ive seen loads of posts about people running C600 @ more than 1 Gig FC!!!
Logically my 766 should be more oc-able than a 600...

Well logic can be a ***** sometimes. The P6 .18u chips are difficult to get past 1GHz period. But I think you could hypothetically get the celeron to 100MHz FSB with some killer super cooling (water cooling and a 118W peltier ought to do it), but I'ts not worth the effort IMHO.

Already plotting on a home made water cooler with a car radiator and some killer waterpump and copper cooler block...

Are there such things as >200 W peltiers?

Is a switched PSU a must for peltiers?
Since my PSU probably wouldnt cope with the amps drawn by a peltier i thought i might get one of them small, cheap 220->24 V converters. That one could also power the waterpump. I aint going for any of those lame fish tank waterpumps, there are plenty of powerful and cheap pumps at http://www.elfa.se/en/

It's best to have a dedicated PSU for any peltier with a Qmax(pumping ability) of 80W or greater.

Trust me on this one, IT ISN"T WORTH IT!!! Do yourself a favor, get a KK266 motherboard, a AXIA 1 ghz TBIRD from newegg.com and o/c that with supercooling, and you got yourself a supercomputer. CELERON's SUCK!!! LET ME TELL YOU!!! I have been trying to get my Celeron II 700 to 1050 (100 fsb) forever! Only Stable @ 966 (2.1v) Peace of crap Celeron! Tbirds/P3's/Duron's are much faster.

Well that would be a lot more expensive than what im thinking about. Consider this:
new case >50$
new mobo >150$
new processor >120$
thats at least 320$!!!!!!!!
The celly system lands at about 200$ and then i dont have to change more than the processor...
Everyone tells me to change to AMD but the total cost will get a lot higher, even if it has more oc potential!

did you not read the bit I put about super cooling celerons not being economical, if you knock off 200mhz off what ever speed you reach that is the speed a p3 would need to run at to perform the same as a celeron, for example my [email protected] only performs about as well as a 700-750mhz p3, so if you managed to get your chip up to even 1.2ghz which is unlikely even with a peltier a 1ghz p3 would perform as well, so a 700mhz p3 which is likely to get up to around 1ghz would peform as well as cost less than the peltier setup, you could even buy an AXIA tbird and a athlon motherboard for about the price of the peltier setup which would overclock to 1.4ghz+ and out perform it by a long shot, your best bet with that celeron is either to try and sell it over ebay or just settle for the highest fsb you can get stable
