Yes, you’re reading it right!! 8 Ghz!! Out of CPU-Z’s top 20 list of highest clocked CPUs, Celeron chips — most of them of the Celeron 347 variety — occupy 12 spots, or 60 percent of the list. And recently setting a new record for the No. 2 spot, Belgian overclocker ‘Blind’ from Madshrimps pushed his Celeron 352 chip (Cedarmill core) to 8.116GHz.

In order to ramp up that high, Blind used the Dragon F1 Extreme Edition LN2 cooler with gum filling the gaps around the socket to prevent condensation. It took nearly 1.9V to coax the Celeron past 8GHz, well above its stock 1.3V rating.

I’m not sure how much use will 8ghz be for daily use..but it sure is sweet to see that number!

oh and here’s the link the guys who made it. click here
