In the case of a Celeron 366->550 overclock, the FSB goes straight from
66 to 100, which works perfectly on all motherboards : the AGP and PCI
speed multipliers operate correctly at the 100 FSB, which means that the
only overclocked component is the CPU itself.
This is why the Celeron 300->450 and the 366->500 are such nice solutions.
