    Yeah i know but the problem is i have a k7s5a so i can't choose another multuplier! That is the reason i do it on the chip itself!

    The thing is if one or more of the bridges you have cut have come into contact with the fine wire mesh that runs just under the surface of the CPU body then usually it will short thru this earthing mesh and lock the CPU at a multiplier of 11. That's why ppl who can unlock the normal way fill the pits with something non-conductive to keep these fine wires out of the way. Sometimes CPU's will just remain locked and may a some point just die. :(
