Abit NF7-S (with 5bit FID) and Athlon XP1700... do I still need to unlock?
 
Hi peeps :)

I've unlocked quite a few Athlons by now, but not a modern XP yet (I think I did an XP1400 a while back). I have been told that the Abit mobos with "5bit FID" will oc the CPU without having to unlock it - is this true?

If I still have to unlock the chip, can someone tell me, is it the same as before? Nothing new I should know? I have been out of the OC scene for a few months you see :)

Thanks!

Im not sure whether you have to unlock, I expect you will, and yes, it has changed a fair bit form the old tbirds. You will have to fill the pits between the L1's with a nonconductive substance before using a conductive ink, or defogger repair fluid to connect the bridges.

Cool - same as the XP1400 then :) that's good, I've done that before.

Thanks! :D

Not if it is a Tbred.

Uh yeah, if its a TBRED, no unlocking pop in and have access to all multipliers. If its a Tbred b, expect 2.0 ghz or higher overclock.
