Is my XP 3200+ unlocked?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Been doing a lot of research and some say early versions of the 3200's were not locked. mine was made in the 32nd week of '03 and from what im reading mine may be unlocked but im not an overclocker and dont really know how to test to see if it is.

i built up a A7N8X-E Deluxe with the 3200 about four years ago. running some crappy pny generic ram (that the board recognizes as paired - go figure) cause i just had way to much trouble with a couple sticks of xms corsair.

anyway in researching building a new system again i came across listings on ebay saying that unlocked 3200's were selling for crazy money, crazy enough to pay for a new 5000 BE and a higher end asus board.

see where im going with this. marketing people! can anybody help me to figure out if i have gold here? ive attached a shot of the label and cpuz'd it to prove its authentic.

like i said if someone can tell me what to do to see if it is unlocked or not id be much obliged.

oh, i am using uber bios 13. i tried everything to get that stinking ram to work.

thanks

it's 32 week of 03, should be unlocked. Everything pre week 32 was unlocked, a good bit up until 39 was unlocked, and it's hit and miss after 39.

You can always turn it into a mobile with the L12 pencil mod.

hey thanks for the reassurance. i bumped up the multiplier in the bios to 11.5 and it did clock up to 2550ghz from 2200ghz as shown in cpuid.

what would be the benefit of turning it into a mobile with the pencil mod if its already unlocked?

i have no idea what im doing after the multiplier bump so ill just let its potential new owner have the pleasures. thanks

Man I haven't posted here in a while.



Can run Super Pi all day at 40 degress. No, I'm not on air like my sig says. I upgraded and like I said, haven't been here in quite a few months.

Don't ask how I got 2800, it's not worth it.
