    If it has a sticker on the top by the edge giving you the manufacture date, core revision, etc, then it is a Thoroughbred. All Palamino cores and earlier had this information etched directly to the core.

    if you have wcpuid, run it and it will give you info about your system
    Palomino is
    Family 6 / 7
    Model 6 / 6
    Stepping 2 / 2

    Thoroughbred is
    Family - 6/7
    Model - 8/8
    Stepping ID - 1/1


    Its easy, and you dont have to tear into the system.

    As far as which board unlocks it ... the B`s are mostly being shipped unlocked. How can a board unlock a cpu ??

    Dont think thats possible as the locking is specific to the chip.

    Actually, it can be adjusted by the newer chipsets. Don't ask me the specifics of it, but I know it as gospel. ;)

    Both the nForce2 and the VIA KT400 chipsets will allow you to adjust the multiplier without physically unlocking the processor, but not all board manufacturers use this ability. I know that my EPoX 8K9A2 (KT400) board does, though.
