Where can I find a good article with pics explaining the bridges that determine the multiplier settings so I can hardwire my Amd 1000 to run at 1333?

connect the 5 L1 bridges and you have unlocked mult

1GHz cpus have 4 bridges. Infact, all Athlons have 4 bridges only exluding the 1300 B and 1400 B CPUs.

Only Durons and XPs have five.

But yeah, just unlock, hardwiring is eVil and is condemed because people use this to sell overclocked faked CPUs. Not a good thing.

I’m an evil guy!

I have unlocked the chip and have been running it in my abit KT7A for over a year at 1333 but My friend wants to buy it off me and run it in his gigabyte kt133 chip set board that only auto detects the chip so I would like to hardwire it to run on his board. Another thing is that he only has a 100 bus and this chip is running on the 133 bus, incompatible with his board.

I want to buy a low speed Tbred and want to use the money I get from selling this cpu towards buying the Tbred, also it would be an interesting project.
Yeah, hardwiring chips aint all bad. It's a good way to get easy performance for mobos that don't support OC adjustments, especially in this case when you know what speeds the chip will do at respective voltages.

can i unlock my 1700+ by connecting those 5 L1 bridges?? or thats for all xp cpus?

Yes you can, that works for all durons/tbirds/xps that arent unlocked when you buy them (only tbirds and tbreds come unlocked).
