I went to get a new CPU from Newegg.com cause I just can't seem to get much out of this XP 1800, even though it's unlocked and all. I got 185 on the FSB last night, but that was with a Vcore of almost 2.1 and this was with air cooling so that wasn't very cool...:rolleyes:

I wanted to get a XP 2400, but it wasn't in stock, and so many people seem to have such good luck with the Xp 1600 so I thought I'd give it a try for now and see how it goes.

hopefully newegg will get it to me before the weekend.
I put a rush order on it, and they are usually good about that...

I want to unlock it obviously...
but well my old XP 2100 was a nightmare to try to unlock.
so I am alittle hesitant about this XP 1600.

do all 1600s unlock the same?
where can I find the best way to do it?
