    Several mods have been circulating on the web of how to unlock AMD processors. Most of the mods are confined to
    alterations of the CPU in form of shorting or reconnecting bridges. In most cases, these modifications reguire quasi
    surgical skills and yet, they won't work on some processors / systems. An alternative modification that has become
    fashionable is to short pins on the CPU. While this is straight-forward, this method still misses the point in that it is
    somewhat risky and difficult to implement. Based on laziness, our agenda has always been to use our brains instead
    and we came up with a simple modification that is absolutely risk-free and can be done in about 5 seconds.

    Following the procedure outlined below can irreversibly damage your equipment and we assume no responsibility
    whatsoever for any consequences of even reading this article.
    ["RISK FREE" then why the need for a warning?]

    but you need the right processor for that method ...right wiggo...older Athlons won't be able to be unlocked with just the MOBO.

    Correct me if i am wrong...

    Well I don't know if these two methods would work with Thunderbirds or Palaminoes let alone either Duron core. :?:

    I would of thought the those exact same pins, on a Duron, TB, and Palamino, would do exactly the same thing, because the Mobo has every pin of the socket going out to various parts of the board which needs certain things from the processor, so I reckon that each pin must do the same as the older versions.

    I could be completely wrong, but I doubt it. :p
