my athylony birdy!

My atlon is very capable! i think
let me say what i have done so far from highest to lowest and inbetween notes. all overclocks(or atleast trys) are at the max settable Voltage of 1.85) and they are on kt7a

1450 Mhz (10x145) = boots to windows /hard lockup when folding

1390 Mhz (10x139) =boots went through about 3 hours of folding but locked up after the monitor went into power save mode

1370 Mhz (10x137)= running it rite now been folding all day stable

now all this is with 2x 256MB PC133 Kingmax TinyBGA

i think if i could voltmod this board this chip could get 1450 easily...

And why can't you? Soldering skills are easily gained with an old, retired, PCB. Resistors cost like $.07! And there is probably a hack out for the board, and if not we'll help ya come up with one(there isn't a whole lot to 'em really) . . . .

You could use an SMD Grabber to take hold of the "legs" instead of soldering.

Ok found SMD grabbers! they are PERFECT for volt mods! only thing is you cant seem to buy less than about 20 at a time......... if i went ahead and bought some, who would be interested in buying a few off me? i will know the price once i check my local electronics shop...

PM me if interested, im in the UK so if anyone who wants some where overseas i couldnt really pay for shipment, but in UK i expect it will be a case of send me about £2 and i send u the clip!

PM me if interested!

Doctor from Overclockers.com introduced these SMD Grabbers to us & was giving them away. I would have asked for one but I can't expect him to ship it overseas. The electronic supply shops here do not carry them

hmm... so what you do is take the solder lead whatever it is the melting stuff and put some on the tip? and then take the tip and put it on the parts to be joined?

heres a link:Grabber things!

VERY EASY just push em on with the resister soldered to the other end... no risk of frying the board through dropping solder, or overheating the Voltage regulator with the soldering iron.

This site lists them as $78 for 2.... i seen em a couple dollars each i think........ im gonna go to maplin and ask about em this weekend

SMD grabber aren't really designed for much current. There intended more for switching on the pins of a DAC. Basically, I'm saying I'd much prefer a soldered connection any day of the week for Vcc hackage. But if you guys want to give 'em a shot, I see no harm in that. It is through trial and error that we learn . . . .

That's what I have now. I have a Precision Micro-Clip Test Jumper (part#278-017 Radio Shack) clipped to pin 7, then from the chip, a 47K variable trimmer between the chip and ground. It has worked out flawlessly, and to think it's not permanent.
