Thread: how can i unlock my amd atholon processor




  1. Default

    i am new to this overclocking business, and my first attempt failed

    so i set my mobo to auto on the multiplier and another dip switch (auto or 100mhz [=200mhz fsb])

    i tried doing the multiplier but ive heard that i need to unlock my processor before i do that.

    i have also heard that in order to unlock it you have to connect some leads and im wondering how to do that.

    noob in need:shrug:

    ------------------------------

    this is what i have: http://tw.giga-byte.com/MotherBoard/...XP%20Ultra.htm

    gigabyte 7vaxp ultra

    What type of AMD processor do you have? Thunderbird, Duron, Palomino, Thoroughbred, Barton? It depends on what type processor you have as to how to unlock the multiplier. If you don't know the processor type, then post the numbers from the core and we can go from there.

    well, i really dont know what type it is, but i have the box. it pretty much says that it is:

    an amd atholon
    1400-266 MHz

    its also got some gay eye catchers:

    'with 266 MHZ front side bus'
    'performance enhancing cache memory'


    it pretty much looks like this one:

    OK... so it is the older Thunderbird line. That is actually a good thing as they are very simple to unlock. If you'll check out our AMD Overclocking Guide you'll find the unlocking info for the T-Bird on page 8. You might find some other good info in there too. :)

    Start learning NOW BRO......beofer it is too late. Do not mess with ocing until you know everything about your computer. I mean start looking in computer books, guides, and on the net like places like this. You are a nut for not doing that before ocing your proc. I mean come on> You don't even know what your processor is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Holy crap!

    Damn Chaos, why so harsh? Hes new at this stuff and just trying to learn how to do it, we were all like that at one time. I admit there was a time I didnt know how to overclock, or unlock an Athlon, or how to tell t-birds,palaminoes,tbreds and all that apart, hes just trying to learn, like we all do

    All i meant was that he should of known a little bit more about his computer before he started the complex procedure of ocing.

    Ok, but ya coulda said it like that he first time, instead of going all out on him.

    BTW, what is your processor? I mean more than the speed
