Unlocking the Athlon XP and others


Recommended Posts

Unlocking an Athlon XP or any CPU can be a daunting task at best.

I have unlocked a few and have not always been successful on the first try by any means. Sometimes its taken as many as 4 tries. I personally prefer the Super Glue/Micro-Conductive Pen as this

way has worked the best for me in the past.

Below are some links to many different unlocking Guides and How-to's.

I like to think of myself of as a pretty good solderer, because of my past R/C car infatuation. But anytime I take anything remotely harmfull near my computer such as a screwdriver I get nervous more or less a soldering gun. Ill stick with Jimbowy on the kits.

WOW that is so cool. Now any moron can unlock with not much trouble. Well except the ones that can't mount a heatsink. :lol:
