    Question urgent help needed - multiplier problem

    just got a new (secondhand) cpu (xp-m 2600+) stuck it in everything booted fine but when i checked bios, i found the highest i could get the multiplier was 6x. it could be a buggy bios so i'm trying a few different bios releases for my mobo (nf7-s2g).

    part of my problem could be the wierd AI overclocking interface the bios has(if anyone knows a bios that will wrk with my board that doesn't have this please tell me!!!). and i saw as5(?) around the core, i would like to clean this off but dont want to damage the cpu so if someone can recommend a household cleaner that will do the trick i'd be grateful!

    any advice, suggestions, links, etc welcome

    edit: tried several bios versions, no improvement

    it also seems the voltage is messed up. it's a mobile chip and the voltage (set to default!!!) is over 1.8V!

    Er mobiles boot up in desktops at a multiplier of 6 - just change it in the bios to whatever you want!

    ok, thats good news, can someone direct me to a site that shows pin mods to change multipliers? i got tricked into getting the "s2g" by the name (it doesn't have multiplier control!). btw solved the voltage prob, the pcb around the core was COVERED in AS5(3?), i didn't have the proper (or even recommended) cleaning stuff... so i found a bottle of 100 proof vodka (strongest stuff in the house by far) which seemed to do the trick

    Edit: nevermind, found a pin mod guide here
