Which unlock method

I have a ECS K7S5A and a XP 1700+ that I can run at 146 fsb with some stability problems. I think its more or less the cheap board I have, so I was thinking about getting an Epox board. Plus this ECS board is boring as there is not much you can do with it. If you want to run stock than it just fine.

So, that said, what method do you guys use to unlock your Xp. I have never done it before and I have seen some videos of it but was just wondering

I was thinking about using model paint to fill the gaps, then use a conductive pen

Anyone have any more detail on this method

I may not have this right, sorry. I suggest going to www.overclockers.com and search for this info. They had a few front page articles about unlocking the Palomino's, aka Athlon XP's.

I used the stuff from ChemTronics on my XP 1800+ and it worked like a charm. I used Heat Sink Grease as Gap filler and the Silver Conductive Grease to close the connections. I'm going to use the Overcoat Pen to seal it, but so far, it's fine.

The thing I like with this method is if you don't get it right the first time, you can just clean it off with a little Acetone and do it over, not to mention if I ever need to RMA the chip

You can get everything (except the overcoat Pen) Here with instructions here
Really worked out nicely... 4 me

G'luck

I want this option too but I heard that Acetone will eat away the top of the CPU

I thinks Nail Polish remover or rubbing Alchohol is better

Anyone know more

Acetone is the main ingrediant in Nail polish Remover. Acetone is the same thing without all the perfume, oils, etc.
I've been cleaning my chips with it for years with absolutely no problems.

Also, at the Chemtronics link I gave you before, you can get CircuitWorks Conformal Coating Remover, if you really want to play it safe

2-Propanone works fairly well at removing all sorts of things... I've even gone as far as using dimethylbenzene and methylbenzene before to clean chips. Doesn't do a bad job, and evaporates fairly quickly. Not the nicest of things to use though, so I don't recommend them.

I can remember, back ina-days, using Carbon-Tetrachloride (Carbon-Tet) to clean parts. Now that stuff worked great only, I think it was found to be a carcinogen, and taken off the market

It really works well and you can clean up any mistakes you make.
