  1. I have went through the threads and havent found ony info on unlocking multipliers on the AMD Duron 1.6. I have that on a ASRock K7VM2 mobo. I have looked on the web page and found nothing. Does anyone have any ideas or info?

    Unfortunately it has been mixed-bag (at least for me) with the Applebreds. I had a total of 9 parts, 6 1.6ghz and 3 1.8ghz. Two of the 1.8ghz were unlockable via the pin-mod, and none of the 1.6ghz were unlockable via that method.

    However, I have found that ALL of the 1.6ghz applebreds were able to be placed at 166mhz FSB, giving them a clock speed of 2Ghz, and they were stable. Not too bad for a chip that cost me only $16 (special deal at Frys' Electronics) and outperformed a celeron of the same speed.

    They run quite cool too, but as for unlocking it seems to be really hit or miss, probably depends on where they were manufactured.

    Thanks for the info. I looked for the pins and couldnt find anything about it, so i figured it was a no go for that.Thanks again.
