Hi everyone ..
So in regards to the multipliers being locked, that is totally true. I managed to use the wire trick to adjust the multiplier for the XP2400 and it worked...to an extent. Now when I boot up, the multiplier is set to 7 and my chip runs at approx 933 Mhz. I have upped the FSB so that my 2400 chugs along at 200Mhz FSB with a mult of 7...and my speed is at 1400Mhz.
Now becuase the board wont allow for multiplier adjustments in BIOS, there are a few programs out there that let you change the multiplier on the fly through windows. (cyrstal CPUID and CPUMSR) But for some reason they dont allow me to, so I am stuck at 7. Its a Chaintec 7NJL6 by the way. Until I get some cash for an immediate upgrade im stuck with this.
I have read that most people who have done this successfully had to mod their chips to Mobile version in order to freely adjust the multiplier on the fly.
Is this the case? Is that why I am stuck at 7? Anyone done something like this or have any experience?
