I read somewhere (it may have even been on this site) that all of the T-Breds come from the factory unlocked. However, I have a T-Bred A at home, and I can not change the multiplier on my A7N8X. Is it that all T-Breds are unlocked, or is it that all T-Bred Bs are unlocked? Thanks.

DOH! I don't know how I feel about that. I've only had my XP2100+ for a couple months. I'm running a ThermalTake Volcano7+, and the processor runs very cool. I'm sure I can squeeze more out of it without harming it. What type of results have people achieved overclocking a 2100 T-Bred A?
