    with all AMD cpu's now being "locked" can you still o/c them a bit by just uping FBS?
    XP2100+ "B" @ 2.2GHz (11.0 x 200, 1.7v) & Coolmaster Aero 7+
    ASUS A7N8X dlx with AMD h/s + fan mounted on n/b and passive on s/b
    X-Micro Ti4200 218mb
    512mb Geil PC3200 (400 MHz) single channel
    Dell 21"
    Enermex 710b case with 4 TMD case fans
    and the usual running gear......

    The multiplier is locked on datecode 0339+ Bartons.

    Yes ya can still raise the FSB on locked CPU's but ya very unlikely to get anywhere near as high FSB speeds as those that can change the multiplier.

    Athlon 64s multiplier can only be brought down, not up. So to OC you will need to use the FSB.

    In case your wondering, its a new power saving mode. If the processor is only running at 10% load, it will automatically lower the multiplier and reduce the clock speed to say 800MHz. If you think about it, its really going to increase the life as well as decrease the heat and noise. Of course, as soon as its back up to 100% load, it adjustes the clock speed accordingly.

    I have no idea what you are talking about here dude, the only CPU's that do that are mobile.

    Cool 'N' Quiet it was its called. It was borrowed from the mobile CPUs and is now in the A64 Chips.

    What I read about Cool N' Quiet, said it dynamically adjusted fan voltage depending on the temperature...didn't sound like anything special, that's been done before.

    I dont mean to sound picky but you couldnt have read it then. It clearly states how it adjusts the multiplier to meet the load %. It is the same as the mobile version, like you said. Read the page after that one as well. Thats where the bulk of it is explained. Has CPU-Z Screen Shots, and a wattage table.

    I personally love this idea. I havent heard about it untill now, so it sounds very innovative to me.

    I'm not talking about your article, I am talking about what I read elsewhere.

    I didn't say that article was wrong.
