  1. Hello, first time posting so hi
    I'm getting ready to unlock my amd xp-3200 and have a ?
    i'm using a asus a7n8x-e m/b in the bios it shows cpu multipliers up to 16.5
    does this mean it's already unlocked (at the factory) or do i still have to work with the cpu ie fill in the gaps and connect the dots

    thanx for any help

    I'm not sure but I know that whatever you can get with a 3200+ (even unlocked) you can get faster with a XP-M 2500+ or higher (barton core).

    the 3200+XP runs VERY hot. So be careful with overclocking.
    Ensure you have excellent cooling.

    Newer XP chips are NOT overcolckable as they are locked.
    I know, I own one and also toasted a 2500 in the past with overclocking.
    The 3200 is quite fast at stock speed. I really don't recommmend overclocking it.
