This should be easy for some, but I just assembled my first computer. Now for the fun stuff. Do I need to short out any leads on the cpu to unlock it? From the ratings on my cpu from this website, at or near 1 gig overclock should be a duckshoot. I am not interested in pushing this thing. That would be all I'd need to explain to my nagging wife that I cooked the cpu and I need another one. Do I need to short anything?
Yes you have to do the infamous pencil trick on the L1 bridges on your cpu
If you brows thru the AMD cpu treads here you will find out how.
