What i can do to unlock my processor?
First off Id like to say I hate this mobo. It cant handle higher fsb's than usually 107. I got mine to 110fsb. Loaded up ran fine for 3 days, then tried my luck with the +33 ram setting and to my surprise it worked. Ran fine for a day then restared and it couldnt get the 110fsb +0 or even 107 +33 / 107+0. Im using the 1007 ver. Didnt know they had higher ones hmmm. Any way find out what chip you have. Its either a slot a classic (black heatplate and on pcb L2 cache) or the slot a tbird (silver / raw alum. heatplate and on die L2 cache). Next crack the case on the chip off or notch it and get a gfd (its a device that attches to a connector on the slot a pcb and unlocks the multiplier). If you have a classic then any gfd will work. If you have a tbird then only the gfd's that uses an external power souce will work. Also if you have a classic you may have a problem with the cache divisor settings at higher speeds. Do a search there is tons of info on it. Good luck.
A couple of links to help you out.
look at my post there is a little information about my slota 750......grrrrrrr i screwed up when i went to reply to your post
You need a GFD to unlock your Slot A...

I have a Slot A T-Bird that works fine with a non-seperate power GFD....
