    Default Athlon 850MHz SocketA to what?

    I've got an Athlon SocketA CPU, 850MHz, on an FIC AZ-11 MB. This board doesn't allow for multiplier changes, so I'll have to change it with the copper traces on the chip. How high should I expect to go? I know I'll have to up the core voltage for stability, and then make sure it'll stay cool, but what should I change to multiplier to for a starting point? Changing it again will mean removing the HS/fan and re-doing the copper traces again. Even if I gained a hundred or two more MHz, would the speed be noticable, and worth the trouble?

    Thanks in advance!

    Most of those 850's will do 1GHz+ so a multiplier of 10 should work in most cases but do be sure to up the core voltage 0.1v before you do it.
