I have just ordered a new system including the Athlon 800 TB. I had heard that AMD had "locked" the new athlons. From what I have read there is obviosly a way around this!!!

I have no shame in admittting that I ahven't much of a clue as to how do acheive this (my last foray into the desktop PC market was as long ago as when a P100 with 32Mb RAM was considered to be bloody good.
Anyone fancy spending some time teaching a keen ignoramus?
