    Thats a great method! Did you just use normail rosin-core solder for that? That would be great. I could take my chip to my E. Engineering class and unlock it.

    Does this (wiretrick & solder technique) only unlock the T-Bred chips or can it work with the Palomino's as well?

    I need to unlock my AGOGA 1900+!

    wouldnt the lower multipliers already be unlocked on the 1900+ ?

    I dont know if they are unlocked....are they suppose to be? I read that a lot of the chips are unlocked with the NForce2 boards, but Ive never checked to see if it was or not. I thought that was only with the T-Bred chips?

    Anyway, if they are not unlocked...will that trick that you did work for me too? You used a conductive pen to do it?

    The L1s have to be connected/closed for this mod to work. Glussier did this to his board, except a little more detailed. Instead of just crossing the pins to access higher multipliers, he put in a microswitch so that he is able to switch between high or low multipliers.

    Here's a good read about a similar but more complex mod. http://www.ocworkbench.com/2002/ecs/...OD%20GUIDE.htm
