it depends what CPU you have. Some are locked from manufactuer and need a bit of drawing on them to unlock them, for example Athlon XP CPU's I think.

What CPU do you have?

Ah...thats what I'm getting confused with. Sorry.

The multiplier allows you to overclock more though doesn't it?

yup, thats why the FX-55,FX-53's are so valuable they have the multiplier unlocked so you can o/c shitloads more than a athlon64

Ah ha. I guess then that if the muliplier was unlocked, you wouldn't have to increase the voltages half as much? Resulting ni a cooler and more stable overclock?

Yeah, though Athlon 64's can reach an Athlon FX-55 with tinkering and alot of water cooling i'd presume. They are all overclockable to around 6ghz if cooling and stabalising was done to the max

i dont think a FX-55 will reach that high...although it might but i dont think it will, that'd be one serious o/c, maybe liquid nitrogen or soemthing
