This is an interesting question since the Celeron autoselects the proccesor speed itself on many boards. If you look on the board you may find that it was made by ASUS or some other major maker and you can download the manual, which will tell you anything you need to know. I think that basically you need to find the manual. I have a little board, a Trigem Cognac with a Celeron and the chip selects it's own speed on it.
