Read this prior attempting to unlock your Athlon\Duron.

Hi!,
I have come to the conclusion that the only true way to determine whether you can mod you k7 to unlock or multiplier or not(beside the manufacturing week)
is the obvious cuts on the L1 one bridges on model 6 CPUs and L3 bridges with
model 8 CPUs. The latest CPUs of both models has the bridges disconnected from the circuit, therefore no pencil mod can help, due to this facts i can
confidently say that if you don't have to obvious cuts on your CPU it either already unlocked, or can't be unlocked at all.
Bartons(model 10) had there L3 bridges disattached to the main circuit since week 38 of 03'. tho they can still be modded to a mobile by reuniting the L5 bridges.

Use CrystalCPUid to check whether you multiplier is locked or loose.

Download CPU-z to check your CPU's model.

Does any one has something to add regarding this matter?.

With the "6" the pencil trick can work... #3 works better than a #2. I prefered the silver pen for circuit repair, a kit available at auto part stores for reparing the rear window defoggers works well to.
On the "8" it is necessary to fill in the gouge that is cut, then bridge over that.
The Barton mobile isn't a mobile mod actually because lower watt usage cores are used to make the true mobiles. It does however open up the multiplyer but does nothing to accomidate the voltage adjustment issue.

I would add that unless you mean the laser cuts are an indication of the potential to unlock the laser cuts themselves can be gotten around. You take a crayon, or a color pencel, or pretty much anything thats nonconductive and softish, and fill in the cut, then you can do a pencil line right over the cut.

Regardless to the core, your XP becomes a mobile after the mod^^(Tho you right, the mod doesn't imbnue the XPs with the remarkable overclockability of the mobile processors), There is an video that shows how to unlock "super locked" model 6 processors, here's a link: http://www.tgdaily.com/2001/11/24/second_thg_video/ .


Urufu, i meant nothing but that the cuts are the only confident indicator of the unlockability of you k7 CPU.
