If I do it to my intergrated CPU and it burns, that means that i'll lose a rig

How about a golden permanant marker pen?

Plus, I saw on my mobo that I have a jumper that changed the CPU's FSB Unfortunatelly, I don't have it, or I could have changed it to 166MHZ

I think they scammed me saying it was a 2700A+ On the CPU, it says 1333MHZ

That wouldn't work. It needs to be a specific type of pen that has traces of metal in it, not colouring.

The pencil trick worked fine for me when I had a Duron. If you make a mistake and accidently touch connectors you shouldn't, just rub it out. More difficult to undo mistakes with a conductive pen I would imagine.

not really, i think the pin mod is the easiest, just get a copper wire and make a loop and connect two pins.

Haha, I've heard of this. People use to do this to do some overclocking with their old Athlon CPU (Slot A). Apparently, the graphite acts like a conductor or bus to alter the course of the transmission. There's an online guide that showed you how too. I use to have that exact same CPU when it came out at the time.

yepp, DFI NF4 LanParty Ultra-D They put a layer of epoxy, but scratch that off and use the conductive pen. The pencil mod is used on mobile AXP's so it opens up the higher multipliers (13 and up).

Don't you overclock when you start the machine and press f6 or something?
