Since the Athlon XP and MP are practically the same thing, I've been thinking. The MPs are unlocked, but slightly more expensive. I'm wondering if the MPs will support multiplier changes the same way an unlocked XP will.
Thanks

Yep, that's exactly how it works - you pay more and get an unlocked processor that is warrantied for multi-proc use. Other than that there literally no difference between the XP and MP chips.

I thought a thought, but the thought I thought wasn't the thought I thought I had thought.

everyting overheats "easily"...

read any review site (including THG) and they have reviews on the overclockability of the Athlon, and Athlon XP

Only if cooling is insufficient. That would happen to any chip!

:smile: Good or Bad have no meaning at all, depends on what your point of view is.
