    I was just reading the Overclocking guide and it was talking about unlocking the CPU to be able to change the multiplier in the Bios. I have an Athlon Thunderbird and I have never soldered the points or done any modification to the chip but I am still able to change the multiplier settings. However if I increase the speed by 100 mhz I experience system hangs during games but in Windows have no problems. Any idea why I can change the multiplier, will soldering the points give me better performance?

    If I remember rightly most Athlon Thunderbirds from the 1300MHz - 1400MHz came from the factory unlocked. ;)

    Can anyone tell me the difference between the PCI FSB Multiplier and the CPU FSB the CPU FSB asks for a value between 0 and 28 in Decimal

    Umm, not exactly.. I think if any, only the early t-birds were unlocked. I had a 1.1 and a 1.4, and neither was. :(
