ok well as it says attempt
it looked perfect all good clean
when i tried to boot nothing came up and the debug card on the 8kha+ showed 00

do you think that just one of the bridges wasnt fully connected?
i cleaned it all off and after a few minior problems i am back into windows.

am sure i will try again but need to know where i went wrong.
 
unlocking

try, try again... When my unlock attempts failed, it posted, but not all the multipylers would work. Once, my default multiplyer changed and caused all kinds of problems. It changed to 12.5x, and my cpu just couldn't take that speed. I couldn't even get into my bios! As long as you haven't fried it, I'd say keep trying.

Be careful about the bridges below the L1's... If you get anything conductive in those pits, it could change your default multiplyer. I'd fill those pits with superglue, or whatever you're using, just to be on the safe side.

i had tape over the bridges all the time

is it possible that my cpu wouldnt post because it was trying to run a something like a 13x multiplier and by cleaning if off i was back to 11x ?
i put my bios back to default before i unlocked my chip so it could have tried 12.5x133 at default voltage and the chip didnt like it.

am getting more confident each time i try and i know 1 day i will get it
the L1 cache is still looking good so i know i have atleast 1 more attempt left in me
 
default multiplyer

If it was trying to run a high multiplyer as the default, and it wouldn't post...

You could set your bios multiplyer setting manually for whatever multiplyer is your default. Like for me, default is 10.5x, so I set it to 10.5 instead of the "default" setting, even though they're the same multiplyer. That would prevent that type of problem I would think. You could also set your voltage a tad higher and maybe that would help. Change these settings before removing the cpu for unlocking of course.
