An Exclusive Pencil Unlocking the AXP2100+, Surprise!!!

As the topic said, it is surprising for many of you.

I bought an AXP 2100+ yesterday and yes, unlike any other XP chips, this chip is harder and takes more than just closing the L1 bridges. Connecting other bridges and cutting the other bridges are involved. This is based on my experience in this chip and have a reference about this issue in the website.

Yes, penciling was performed and unlock is success so far. Incredible.. Mostly, penciling was done except one of the bridge I used soldering iron( a long story as to why I used soldering iron on just one of the bridges..) , But the surprising news is that Penciling is working.

This penciling project I did is very different than normal #2 pencil you see everywhere. This is called 2B lead, on a mechanical pencil. 0.3mm is preferred, however I only have a 0.5mm. 2B lead is extremely dark and soft. This has minimal resistence of electrical conductivity. LOL I love my 2B mechanical pencil. hehe!

Result: So far, it isn't working perfectly cauze most of the bridges are connected by this pencil and maybe it isn't making perfect connection however, I am able to change the default multiplier of 13x to 10x, 10.5x, and 11x so far... I haven't tried other multiplier settings yet, so I'll let you know when I try other multi's..

Here's what I'm running currently. I simply set at 10 x 180 for testing. This isn't the max overclock. Just wanted try one of the setting and post the screeny. Here!

Oh I forgot to mention, I did try regular #2 pencil attempting to close the bridges and it didn't work as if nothing was done to it. So don't even bother trying the regular pencils cauze it will not work.

Ok, sorry guys. Here's the update.. with bad news
2B pencil lead was strong enough to alter the multipliers but not stable in rebooting. It fails often when I restart the computer@ whatever the OC setting I set to. The 2B lead wasn't good enough to be considered "steady, full contact" on the bridges.

I did get upto 10 x 190@ 1.95V. But hey.. at least 2B penciling method did something.. better than nothing I used this method for the time being till I get a proper tool such as conductive silver lacquer. Soldering iron is good but it's much harder to apply it than the conductive silver lacquer.. plus I didn't have the right tool and the soldering iron is too big.

I'll resume my XP2100+ unlocking once I get the stuff ready.. Till then, back to my good'ol super-tweaked Duron! hehe!..

Ok.. I failed on the method of using silver conductive pen/ tape/ super glue on unlocking the XP2100+ chip. Stuck with 11.5X and other multipliers do not work.

I made one more try by using 2B pencil this time..
It works now at 7X, 7.5X, 8X, and 8.5X with full stability. No rebooting failure problems nor any other problems.

So, it's now running at 8.5 x 202 on my same mobo/ system combo. The default multiplier is at 7.5X.

Later I'll work on getting the 9.5X multi cauze that's what I wanted the most.

Here are some of the results on the benchies.

For Sandra memory, I ran the AXP@ 8.5 x 212mhz FSB= 1802mhz@ slower RAM timing of cas2.5-2-3 & Slow BIOS. Not bad for cas2.5 ram performance delivered by Mushkin..


http://portfolio.iu.edu/skrska/8.5_x...w_BIOS_AXP.png




Pifast v41 calculation time:
Previous result on the fully tweaked/oc'ed Duron w/ maximum FSB@ 1414mhz = 88.32 sec

With AXP@ 10.5 x 181 fsb@ 1900, fully tweaked, 67.23 sec



http://portfolio.iu.edu/skrska/67.23_pifast_v41.png



http://portfolio.iu.edu/skrska/SuperPi_AXP_1.9Ghz.png




Q3A timedemo:

GF3 Ti200@ 260/ 550

Previous result on the Duron@ 1414 = 6.6 sec/ 204.3 fps

AXP@ 10.5 x 181 w/ BIOS 2312, resulting in fastest performance = 5.5 sec / 243.0 fps

3DMark 2001SE = 10,031





http://portfolio.iu.edu/skrska/10.5x...CMark_2002.png


I'm quite happy with the result..
