If I run a Tbred at 166 fsb and turn down the multiplyer to match stock speed, would the chip work? My logic is if the Tbred cores have the capibility to run at 166fsb whenever AMD decides they what to sell those. also what are my chances of getting an unlocked Tbed Rev. B at PR 2000 or PR 2200 from lets say Newegg?

The answer to your first question is yes, as long as the rest of your system can handle it. Memory, pci/agp cards, and hdd all need to be able to run at that speed(see if your motherboard can change the divisor if they can't). For your last question, they haven't started making Rev.B cores for those models yet, so you wouldn't be able to buy one from any store.

Actually they have been making the Tbred B cores for a while (because some members have them), however they are quite rare. If you are planning on only getting a Tbred B, then I would wait a while until there is a place that actually guarantees Tbred B's.

Well, newegg.com are now selling 1700+ TBred cores for $75. I couldn't tell you if it is an A or a B, although I just ordered it. The word is that AMD is only producing B cores at this time, and I dont think it'd make sense for em to make em on the old A revision, athough I've heard that they have been making the A versions, but just waiting for current supplies of the XP line to run out?? Not sure, but I'll post back when I get my chip.

I'm Not sure what size your CPU is but if its a 2200+ then it's either a >>> AXDA2200DKV3C, that's a Throughbred A. Or AXDA2200DUV3C, that's a Throughbred B.

Check the articale by ED for other sizes on the front page of overclockers.com
