    I have a nice shiny new XP2200+ chip sitting on my desk - upon inspecting the L1 bridges, I noticed there are no laser pits between the contact points - does this mean that the chip is unlocked?
    Anandtech had a similar XP2200+ chip w/o the laser pits & they connected the L1 bridges accross the surface of the chip anyway.

    I guess the easiest way to find out is to boot it up & see if I can change the multiplier - but if someone happens to know.....

    You only need to reconnect the last L3 bridge to unlock Thoroughbreds up to the 12.5 multiplier but here's all the details. Also EPoX have a new BIOS out, or about to, for KT400 boards that will let you manipulate the multiplier without moddin' the CPU. ;)

    In my quest for rebuilding my pc i bought this board, and although it may not be the best, it too has an overclocking facility onboard called "Redstorm".

    I guess almost all the newer boards will have this feature.

    Yes but those programs only maninulate the FSB and don't touch the multiplier at all. :devil win

    The BIOS on the EPoX 8K9A series will only work with Thoroughbred CPU's to my knowledge and no mention of Palamino CPU's was made sorry. : peace2:
