    I'm still pretty new to the whole Thoroughbred thing, so I bought a T-Bred 1800 at a local store the other day. But after reading the stories about how to unlock the processors, I have to ask...

    Is this processor unlocked from the factory?

    I'm afraid that I'll need just a bit more detail than that. From the articles that I have read so far, you unlock the T-Bred processors by connecting the last bridge on the L3 line. Since there are no cuts, is this a different revision of the processor requiring a different technique to unlock it?

    Not in answer to your question or anything, just hoped this might prove useful to yourself or others.

    That isn't a Thoroughbred B core is it? :?:

    I have no idea. The core itself doesn't seem to be marked anymore. The data that was there before is now on a tab toward the side of the processor. Here it is...

    My T'Bred 2200 is completely unlocked running in an Epox 8K9A2 - with no mods at all - & the last L3 bridge was cut on it too. I've heard rumours that the 8K9A2 will do this for you. Either way I can use any mult setting I want higher or lower than default.

    I plan on testing this theory soon, but I still have some testing to complete that needs to stick with the old processor. Hopefully I'll be able to start playing around Christmas, but I was just wanting some information about this processor I have.

    But since I have the same mainboard that you do anyway, I'm hoping for some overclocking goodness very soon. :)

    Maybe the "B" core has filtered down over there quickly as all the "A" cores that I've handled here have had the last L3 bridge cut but I havn't handled a "B" core yet. :?:
