The trouble with buying it at newegg is that you just don't know.

How will I know if its unlocked or not ?

change the CPU Multiplier and then reboot...what the BIOS when it boots up...it should say what multi. and FSB you are running...if it is at the multi. you set it at...it is unlocked...if not, then you might need to update to the latest BIOS or your MB just wont support the tbred unlock...not all MB will support the unlock...but you should be able to with the lates BIOS if you are not already running it...

Yes, and to something other then default to see if it works...

And the A's do not OC very well at all...between 1.7 and 1.8...if you are lucky, maybe around 2G...

all of the L1 bridges will be connected on the chip if it is unlocked. easy, simple, and you can check it without opening the package. :D
