View Full Version : dual celeron?

Is there a mobo that runs dual celeron cpu's? If so which ones run dual celerons with speeds of 1 GHz through 2 GHz. Thanks!

as far as I know only some p3 chips can run in a dually set... I don't think any celerons can run dual. i might be wrong though.

Pretty much any board that can run a dual P3 should be able to run a Celeron from the same socket family. Same with P4 based celerons.

I am considering doing dual celeron 1.3 or 1.7 GHz. Does anyone know of any particular boards that will support either of these chips in a dual fashion?

o so you can run dual celleries?
/me hides in corner...

I donít know if you can do dual P4ís yet, but when you can you should be able to run dual P4 based Celerons as well. I donít know what form factor your Celeron is modena, but here is one from Asus (http://usa.asus.com/mb/socket370/cuv4x-ls/overview.htm)

Ah see? I was right! Thanks Chosenfool :D

That is not exactly true, my friend. P3's must be of the cB0 stepping or later to be dual-capable. You might run into an older P3 chip that can not be used in a dual setup... so keep an eye out.
I KNOW that you knew that. You're slippin'!

I do not have links... but you will find on retail boxes of cA2 stepping coppermine chips (and earlier, I assume) that it says something to the effect of, "For use in single processor systems only."
The cB0 stepping chips say something like, "For use in single or multiple processor systems."
I believe those limitations affected both slot1 and flipchip P3 coppermines.
In short, the regular-ole P3 chips were not multi-processor-able until the cB0 stepping arrived. Those were also nice for overclocking... like, say, a 650 to 866 if you could find a cB0 P3 650, your chances of reaching a solid 866 weren't too bad.
I believe, and I could be wrong on this part, that all P3 933s and up were cB0 or later. The lower speeds had both cB0 and cA2 steppings (among other steppings) until they worked out (sold) all the non-multi, older chips.
I'm sure you believe me, CF. But please, someone back me up on this one.

I could be wrong...........
(no really I could be)
but wouldn it be better to run a highend p4 over a dual cel set.
I'd think a 2.8 P4 would do just about everything faster than a dual 1.7 celeron rig.

Also i could get 2 1.7 GHz celerons for about $100-$105...I think what I would say next is self explanatory. No other Intel CPU can match that speed to price.

what would you reccommend for a dual system that is somewhat powerful and not too expensive? (cpu, ram, mobo)
