If you have the 333 2600 you don't need to unlock... Just lower the multi to say 12 and go for A FSB of 200.

CPU should be unlocked already..
What is the default? 12.5x166.66 = 2083?
If yes, then at the very least you should have all lower multipliers available.

I believe some mobos, like KT400's and some NF2's can handle all multipliers on TbredB's. If you are looking for higher multipliers and can't get them... look for a bios update. (the only other alternative is cutting bridges, and I recommend against it.)

ok, thanks for your comments guys. It never occured to me it would already be unlocked!

unlockage
 
it is not completely unlocked, for x's below 12.5 you need to close the last L5 or do the vid pin trick (they do the same thing, one just doesn't leave any marks, smiles).

and, yes, the motherboard you have can make a difference in the range of selections in the bios. the newer ones may have the ability to give all the x's without any changes to the CPU bridges.

SteveI is correct.

bldegle2 is correct.


What SteveI said "CPU should be unlocked already..

is correct. Any Tea Bread chips that come with default multiplier of 12.5x and lower will allow you to have access in all low multipliers upto 12.5x. The default multipliers of the tbred chips also determine what multipliers you'll have access to. This applies to Nforce2, KT333, and even KT266a based boards.


bldegle2,
You may have mistyped it. it's 5th L3 bridge, not last L5. (im sure you know it but just a typing error)

There are at least 4 different methods to accomplish one thing, which is to unlock for lower multipliers.

- The good'ol traditional, formal, most common way: 5th L3 method.

- Wire method on the CPU pins.

- U-pin method on the socket(my favorite).

- Backside of the mobo soldering method(connecting two pins)



All these methods accomplish the same goal.

Hi,

Is this what u mean?

I did this image sometime back relating to my 2400+, but don't have a 2600+ to test.

The trick you guys are talking about is only for higher multiplier CPUs to enable the lower multipliers. In slashgob's case, he already has the lower multipliers so he shouldn't need to do any mods at all.

read the first paragraph of my previous reply again.



the second part, wasn't for slashgob. I was directly talking to bldegle2 about the unlocking concept. If you read again, you would know what I'm talking about. ;)

uggh... Maybe I'm being misunderstood as well.
Reading the entire thread, it would be easy for someone assume that the mod was relavent to the initial post, and not realize that the mod actually does not apply in slashgob's situation.

My comment was actually 'meant' for slashgob (I see how I worded that poorly) .... with the intent to explain to him that given his situation, the mods you guys are discussing do not apply to him. Sorry, slashgob, I should stop referring to you in the third person.
