Hi again, I just ordered a new cpu and this one is a 2100+ TBRED-B and I was wondering how to unlock this chip and if its easier to do than unlocking a palomino. Also I heard that some tbreds come unlocked, and that all you need to do is change the multiplier in the bios [i have a gigabyte 7dxE], is that revision B? thanks in advance!
You don't have to since it's already unlocked. Mine can change its multiplier 13.5 and up. As a matter of fact, its setting is FSB 133MHz and <b><font color=red>13X</font color=red></b> multiplier (1733MHz).
:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
Take a look at those L1 bridges. If there is NOT a visable cut, of some kind or another, then that processor is unlocked.
Look at the L3 bridges. You will see some "cut" bridges. If the L1's don't look *anything* like that, then they are closed.
All you have to do is start overclocking. I'd suggest, right off the top, to close that bottom L3 bridge, and drop back down to the 5-12.5x multipliers. And raise your FSB to 166. Then crank up the multiplier from that.
