First of all: yes I saw the video from TomsHardWare. My problem is now, that I am all new to overclocking and in this video I cant see exactly what to do. Does anyone know a guide to unlock my CPU, where I can see exactly what to do?

Thanks for all help!!

Well there are no real secret ways to unlock it, masking properly with tape is important, fill the gap between the L1's with crazy glue and connect the L1's with window defogger or a kit if so desired, be aware it may take a few tries, I gave up on my Xp2000+ the top got scratched pretty bad, but did unlock my Xp1800+ and now cruising @1760mhz so it was worth it!!!:)
