You can overclock the Celeron A with almost any 440BX boards, but the best are Asus P2B or Abit BH6.  On some boards, it will automatically detects the bus speed and voltage of the chip, however, by shorting some of the pins, you can easliy change the voltage or bus speed even the board itself doesn't provide this function.  My Celeron 300A is running happy at 463 on a Asus P2B.  But it all depends on the chip, about 80% of 300A will do find at 450 or 463, and 5-10% can do 504, good luck.
