Yesterday I unlocked my XP1600+... when I tested it the CPU would only run at a 7x multiplier. I then removed all the silver ink and now it only runs at 9x multiplier... LOL.
Looks like a little durt got into the L3 and L4 bridges... I'm gonne clean them tonight, will keep you informed.

My PC eats so much money that I'm in 'desperate' need of it to buy PC3500 RAM, help Svol with his OC project!

Nah, just run it at 200MHz FSB. 9x200=1800=XP2200+++! Can't push it that far? Well, even at 166MHz FSB, you'll get a slight speed boost to 1500Mhz~XP1800++!

I only have PC2400 RAM (hence the sig) and I don't want to stress the PCI bus to much because I have HD problems (going to replace them soon).

Today after cleaning my CPU thoroughly I'm unlocking it the long way: bridge for bridge.

New results: aftre cleaning and unlocking it again I get the following (strange) results:
Runs perfect at the default 10.5x or lower... but when I set it to 11x it boots up with 9x and with 11.5x it boots with 9.5x. Any idea if this is caused by my mobo or a bad unlock?

I got similar results when i tried to unlock an 1800+ (AGOIA i think)
Changing the multiplier (up or down) i could only lower the cpu speed. bad unlock i reckon.

Yeah... now I can only move it down. At 11x it wont boot even with 1.85V VCore. Gonne redo it sometime.
