Intel Pentium3 533Mhz OC Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hi all,

so I decided to find a old system to run and learn more about linux.
bought a old PIII Board from a friend for 20 bucks canadian (he throw in ram and cpu also)

and I have a Intel Celeron 900Mhz in hand was ready to put in that old PIII Board. and then when I got it , I realize it has a PIII 533Mhz in it (133x4)

I have 2 questions.

1. Stock Setup (see my sig), which perform faster? C900 or PIII533, personally I'm for P3 533, but I want some better prove on that. and google search it, there's not much articles about that 533Mhz at all. so i came here to ask.

2. P3 533 oc? is it any good? any experiences or heard about anyone oc P3 533? how about C900, I head it can do 1200Mhz is it true, or it's something that requires a lot of hassle?

the system is mainly for a casemod project, and aiming on multimedia purpose (no gaming at all)

thank you for ur answers.
