Well, as the subject suggests, I`m looking to unlock a 2100. Now I know there is a bit more to it than filling and bridging the L1`s but how much more.

All this is because I`ve decided to upgrade from my 1700XP @ 1702Mhz to the 2100XP, I know its not a big step but up to now it`s all I can manage budget wise, might be able to go as far as a 2200XP if that`s any easier to unlock though!?

Thanx;) :D

I would'nt even bother unlocking it. You can get the tbred which is already factory unlocked. Multis from 5 to 12.5. If you want higher multis all you gotta do is lock the last L3 bridge. Then you'll get the multis from 13 on up to 18 i believe ;)

Only cpu's i'd bother to unlock are the XP1600 palominos and they have to have good steppings,otherwise i won't waste my time. I'd go for a tbred instead.

If you're interested, i'll sell ya mine :D ;)
