    Hi guys,

    Has anyone of you experience with this combination? Currently, I'm looking around for a good oc'ing board, to start my next upgrade cycle (Board, then cpu, then GFX). Since I wanted to migrate my current AMD 1800 dinosaur to this board, I wanted to know if the board can unlock this CPU. I do not want to unlock it using conventinal methods (bridging L1).

    So does this board allow to change the multiplier for my 1800?

    It is a NForce 400 ultra board. So far I understood that this chipset ignores the lock in AMD CPUs. For Barton CPUs the lock is easily removed by connecting two pins. Something a mobo can do. But can this chipset unlock older AMD CPUs like the Palomino core too?

    Also, currently I have PC333 DDR Ram. I take it that this Gigabyte board can run the ram at 333Mhz, while the AMD 1800 CPU runs at 266MHz? (not overclocked)

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you'll need to unlock your CPU, but you still probably wont get much of an overclock from it, as Palomino cores don;t overclock very well at all.
