    I would use a more stable method for oc'ing the XP chips. That pencil trick works okay at best. I heard that the penciling wears off after awhile.

    No doubt the pencil traces will wear off after a while. But it beats the amount of "surgery" you have to perform to unlock a conventional XP...

    I doubt that the pencil trick will work coz i remember tom's hardware mentioned something like the resistance in the pencil lead is way too high that's why it doesn't work! I think silver lacqur is still the best, anyway check out tom's hardware on unlock XP articles, Cheers!
