I wouldn't get to excited just yet. If its anything like the 1.3a. It will be a poor choice for any useful overclocking. If intel would only have introduced a cely-t @ 133fsb. From my experience the Cely-t best chips are behind us. Plus who would want a cely 1.4a for $150 when a Northwood 1.6a only costs about $135 and there are several decent p4 mobos for around $100. I would spend my money on a P4 northwood unless I was on a realy tight budget and just trying to squeez every last bit out of some old gear that I had laying around. I made that mistake and could kick myself for not putting my eggs in the P4 basket.

You are the only one who cannot get it to overclock so far that I have heard of.

The 1.4 would be a excellant choice for people wanting to upgrade their BX board as high multi's are always better in that senerio without 1/4 divider.
 
I agree with Ol'man in the case of older boards that can not reach 1/4 dividers. I may not have had the success that some have had with the 1.3a but honestly I have not seen many posts of succesfull overclocking of this chip. A few have reached around 1600mhz but few if any have gotten to 133fsb without h2o cooling or pelters. Too me its not a succesful oc if you can not get to at least 133fsb because of the memory bandwith restriction.
I respect Ol'mans opinions but my experience with this chip is not all I had hoped for. I would like to here from others with experince with the 1.3a. The 1.4a should top out at about the same overall speeds.
 
Yep...

I have a 1.2 Gig Celeron Tualatin on an Abit Vh6-t with the vid pin mod. I run it at 1.6 volts at 128 fsb. I can run it at 1.575, but choose to bump up to 1.6 to make sure it stays stable. I can run 130 fsb at 1.675 volts, but choose not to. My opinion is as follows...Celeron Tualatin is on the the same core as the Pentium III in the .13 micron design. The fastest chip in the Pentium III .13 micron design is the 1533 (at either 512k L2 or 256k L2). Therefore, this design is made to go around 1533 or maybe slightly higher. If you get more on an air cooled system, then you are lucky. My system will not even boot properly at anything over 130 fsb. I personally feel that it might be the on die cache that has problems going faster. I will still be watching the database for others overclocking the faster Celerons. Although I think it is almost impossible, I would love to see a Celeron or Pentium III at 2 gigahertz. These chips are excellent and run faster than a 2.0 gigahertz Pentium 4 according to Sisoft Sandra. We are finding out more and more that a higher clock speed does not necessarily mean the chip is faster.
 
I dont think that there is a point in buying anything over a 1.2. The 1.4 is probally already at its max. I can get to 136 FSB so far with my 1.3 but I doubt that the 1.4 can even hit 120 FSB. The slower celerons are worth it seeing that you get a better o/c and higher memory bandwith.
 
good point fishy

I was just thinking if intel wanted to finish a product line they would jack up the price of the last model to get people to buy something else ->$$:mad: p4. But its hard to change my strips..P3/cel-t's rule!:D
 
I got my Celery 1.3 to run above 1600 mhz with relative ease. All air cooled and temps rarely broke 43C under full load. After I design, create, and finish my own water cooling system I'm going to give the chip hell and see how far I can take it. I'm hoping on a FSB of 140'ish (probably dreaming though).

1.4GHz at 1.5v is not at its max. Try 1.6v and see what it hits then.

my cel-t 1300 run 1599/1.5V and 1638/1.65V.
higher V-core up to 1.80V is more unstable :confused:
my temps see sig idle/full (burnbx.exe /h )
is my wather very cool (5-8°C:D) i can 1690 w/ benchis and POST @1729
i wish you good luck :)
(140 FSB only with Vapochill)
 
A lot of people are running celerons over 2 volts. I'm sure that this ultimately shortens the life of the processor, but it often gives huge overclocks. Provided they are properly cooled, they should still last some years, which is likely longer than any of us will have them. Personally, I'm quite disappointed that they are going to the willammate core, but maybe I'll be surprised.
