Another Athlon overclocking device - FrostyTech.com Another Athlon overclocking device

"There have been numerous articles explaining what a GFD is and how it functions, but here is the condensed version. Ever since the Pentium II 350, the overclocking community has become all to familiar with the term "Multiplier-Locked". Overclockers despise this word and spend hours alone in quiet places trying to work around it. When a core multiplier is "locked," the only option is to increase the FSB, thereby forcing the processor to run at a higher frequency. The downside to this is that it is forcing all of our system components to run out of manufacturer specifications. This can lead to other peripheral equipment becoming unstable, making them the obstacle to achieving maximal speeds. At first it seemed that the only way to make the Athlon dance to a higher frequency was via soldering and de-soldering SMD-resistors. This was a messy and intricate task often left to those dexterous enough to even attempt. Needless to say, few users were able to take advantage of the great yields that the Athlons were capable of. Tom Pabst, of www.tomshardware.com, (if you know otherwise please don't hesitate to contact me) was the first to uncover the Athlon's Holy Grail: its golden finger." Interesting article by Darth Maul, worth a look..
