The penicil trick is used to overclock CPU's I believe. You scratch out one of the things on the CPU and it unlocks something, I forget. Google it.

Yea that's it I was right. It's a ghetto way to overclock old AMD's.

well, the pencil mod is to connect the L12 and L3 bridges on the barton cores. Or, you can find the pins on the underside and connect those either of those work. It is used to overclock and open up the higher multipliers on the bartons. They dont work for the A64's because of the IHS they put on there. But you can always pry it off for a better heat conduction.

actually, the easiest way would to use a conductive pen. Lead comes off after a while. You can always use some solder or use the pin mod.
