I think i have one of the earlier p2 400's (august 98), wasn't there some cutoff date where Intel started adding bus-locking capability? where can i find out if my system is bus-locked (besides actually trying to raise the bus speed)
There is a really easy way of checking whether or not your multiplier is locked or not. Why not just try upping the multiplier and you will quickly see for yourself if it works. I have a p400 and that is locked...bummer. Does anyone know how to "unlock" or tamper with the chip, i believe it involves sticking tape over some pins on the slot. I have also seen loads of reviews of systems that have been sucessfully unlocked and overclocked something rediculous.
