How do I unlock the higher multipliers? 1600+
 
I can't get anything above 12x. In fact 15x remaps to 8x.

Maybe somebody can decipher this:

I don't get it.

Why would you want higher mults? just ramp the FSB up :) 12x190= 2280 which is probably a lot more than your chip will manage! 190 is an attainable FSB, even 166X12 is 1992 which again is probably just out of reach!

Iwill KK266 is why. No 1/5th divider or SDRAM that will hit it anyway. I fried a modem trying.

What CPU are you using?

AMD 1600+

THis is only my theory, but since 2200+ is unlocked but only has higher multipliers, and closing a single bridge enables the lower multipliers, maybe on older CPUs, cutting that same bridge might enable the higher multipliers. Just thinking out loud.

EDIT: Don't try this please... unless you find some evidence that this is true... I wouldn't want to be responsible for the death of an innocent CPU.

What bridges? I really don't think that it's like the Tbred. If that were the case I could connect the last L3.

hmmmmmmmmm?

No...that enables the 12.5 and under.

arrrrrrrrrgh!

There are EPoX boards out now that will take you up to the 2800 chips, not a bad CPU span for the life of a mainboard...you might consider grabbing a deal on one when you can, you get a pretty good upgrade path.... That's if you can't find a way to do the deed on your 1600+

Well, if closing that last L3 changes everything over to the lower multipliers, maybe cutting them will switch to the upper multipliers.
