Faulty POS or DOA?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here's the situation. Building pc for the cousin.

Biostar M7VIZ, 2x512mb ddr400, FX5200.
Got a XP 2700@333 today in the mail. Threw it in, didn't work.
When i got it though, it looked as though it had been previously used... (bought it OEM) looked like thermal grease was left around the core.
Threw my XP 3000@400 in the same setup, it wurx, so i know it's not the other components.

I know it's already a DOA and i'm getting it RMA'd. However, i wanted to know this - this is what the ID says:

AXDA2700KV3D
AIUHB 0246XPIW

What does that mean as far as my multiplier on this chip? And what, if anything, do i need beside a mobo capable of changing the multi to get a diff frequency? I read somewhere about which chips are locked and which aren't, and if the memory banks work right, this chip should be unlocked right? My other mobo is a MSI KT880 Delta. Would it change effortlessly on either mobo?

From some quick research, those chip steppings have locked multipliers.

There lock from the factory, there is a mod to turn them into a mobile then you can adjust the multis.

Wait, check out this thread: http://forum.vapochill.com/printthread.php?t=4585

Looks like those steppings do have unlocked multi's. Maybe you should try to exchange, not return.

well with respect to his setup, (see above) do you think i'll get any decent overclocking out of it? I mean, if the multi's come out unlocked then of course... my mobo (MSI KT880) supports multis up to 15 i think, maybe 16 @ 200FSB. But anyway, do you guys think it'll overclock decently? The FSB on the mobo goes up to 333, the ram is 400, and he'll be using a (don't kill me) 250W PSU cause it's all relativley weak stuff. (I on the other hand have a very nice 500W psu ^_^ but that doesn't help me overclock anything...) And the heatsink that's going to go on the proccy is a solid chunk of aluminum that BARELY fits over that socket. (Not the piece of **** copper HS i have that's made up of a base and attatched fins. I HATE ANY NON UNIFORM HS) Think i'll have any problems keeping it cool with some AS5 @ stock speeds?
