I was able to pick up 2 Barton XP2500s. Week 21
I 'm going to install them on my K7D for some overclocking fun.
I've modded XPs before but these Bartons are my first.
I know about the L5 mod to make them SMP but isnt there another mod I have to do? These are 333fsb chips so dont I have to make them run at 266 first?

I've searched forums but id like a good link or step by step from anyone here on how to make these cpus work witholut a hitch.
