Does the "Wire Trick" work on Palominos?
I was wondering if this; juxtiposed "wire trick" mod will work on Palomino CPU's. So far I've understood the grounding of the VSS-pin is TBred specific? Can anyone verify they've tried this with the .18 micron Palomino CPU? Your input would be greatly appreciated (and you can remain anonymous, he he).

Yes, but only AFTER all the L1s are closed first. The wire trick is for accessing lower multipliers on an UNLOCKED CPU. Palaminos need to be unlocked first. It is only useful for a 2100+ Palamino after being unlocked.

OOOH will it also work on LOW mult Palominos to enable high mult?

Warning: I may have spoken too fast, sorry.
IMO, it should work... However, I haven't tried it myself, so I can't be 100% certain... nor do I know of anyone who has. In theory, at least it makes sense.

I knew is was too good to be true. Well I do have between 5x to 24x on my current KT400 Sloth like performance 8K9A. Actually it's not too bad, I've had the FSB over 200FSB, but not by much, thre's no 6:2:1 divider, that's for sure.

Any advice on a nForce2 board, I want to get the board able to reach the highest FSB without doing the VDD mod? Abit, Asus, or Epox? Abit has the ability to raise the VDD to 1.7V?

The wire trick is only good for going from the High multipliers to the low multipliers.

The only Palaminio that the wire trick will do anything for is the 2100+.

All other Palaminios are already in low multiplier mode, if you want the upper multipliers you'll need to cut the 5th L3.
