    I have an ASUS A7V8X-X and an Athlon XP 2700.

    Does the ASUS mobo have unlocking capabilities or do I have to do some physical bridge work on my core?

    Thanx in advance.

    PS: How do you Overclock Graphics Cards?

    Well, that mobo is the KT400 chipset, so Im 99% sure you Do Not need to physically unlock you CPU

    I have a SIS chipset and i can lower my mult but i cant go over 12.5 i think, so??
    Get your fsb as high as he can go then push the multi, if that isn't enuph then unlock it!

    Anything else??

    In actual fact the VIA KT400/400A/600 chipsets are just like the nForce2 chipset and have the ability to change the multiplier built in so long as the BIOS also has the settings to do it.

    Might wanna make that KT400/A... so far it looks as though the KT600 is back to the old days. :(

    That doesn't sound good at all though VIA never mentioned removin' that feature from the KT600. :tears:

    I hadn't heard that either, but I can say for fact that the Soltek board that I just reviewed allowed no multiplier manipulations and the same processor (1700+ "B") moves through the entire spectrum on both nForce2 and KT400 boards. So after a bit of checking around for other KT600 reviews, I never saw a single one that talked about multiplier overclocking; only FSB. Definitely not a good sign for VIA. :thumbs do

    p.boy, you won't have to go unlocking your cpu with an a7v8x-x. My other half is using one....but she isn't overclocked. Her's came with an 2400xp originally but I sold that cpu and dropped in a barton 2800. No problem changing multipliers...I experimented a bit when she wasn't around.
