I don't take offense to you talking a little trash. Especially when you're not correct. Check out the multiplier slot on CPU-z. You should REALLY understand something before you go trashing people. Or at least research it.
"oh and junior ya noob! lol no no hard feelings im just talking a lil smack. Dude, only the extreme core 2 duo's have unlocked multiplier man, how long you been trying to raise the multiplier muahah. you can underclock a locked cpu multiplier, lowering the multiplier but you can never raise it over the locked highest multiplier.
If you want to overclock on your gateway fx cpu by multiplier, your only option is the x9100, even if you got the t9900 you couldnt raise the multiplier, thats the only difference between those two chips, the x9100 has unlocked multiplier. There is a way to overclock the gateway fx with default cpu, by raising your FSB! i think they use setfsb or something or another, you could easily raise your 2.8ghz cpu to 3.0ghz,while raising your ram and ht and fsb mhz all at the same time. If it ran to hot at 3.0ghz you could lower the multiplier down to 2.8ghz while still having the overclock on the fsb.
X9100 and t9900 both go for 100 to 120 bucks on ebay. Its alot better idea to just get a e8435 for around 40 bucks, and just undervolt it. e8435 actually has Better performance than the stock x9100 and t9900 (BECAUSE it is missing all the power saving features, all the crap you usually disable anyways when overclocking or enabling performance mode instead of balanced in windows control panel."
No hard feelings taken. If the multiplier is locked on my T9600, than why is a range shown in the multiplier slot? The multiplier is adjustable.
However, the PLL is time locked. Which means, it limits your ability to change the multiplier or increase the FSB voltage to increase frequency.
Set FSB did not work either. The only option for the FX-7811 is to mod the PLL.
Sorry bro, dig more into your research.
