i have read about closing L1 bridges, and also saw it on toms hardware when they were building the pc. I dont understand why this is done though. Does the cpu work without closing the L1 bridges?? Why is this done? Can someone tell me a little more about this. I just purchased a AMD 1.2 i dont want to damage the cpu. Thanks
In order to overclock the processor you have to close the L1 bridges, but if you don't plain on overclocking then I don't see any real use for doing it, and I think I also read that if you close the bridges it nullifies your AMD warranty.
