You have to look at your L1 bridges and see if there alittle black mark that seperates the white bridge.

I said it is factory unlocked . I did not ask :)

But thanks for the advice terrancelam . If I did not know it it would come in very usefull .

And no there is absolutely no black marks on the cpu . I doubled check with magnifying glass and ask a friend to check too . His is unlocked too :)

I think all the T-Bird CPU's over 1.2GHz, are unlocked from the factory.

The XP cores are locked.

The MP cores are unlocked.

Did you buy it unlocked or unlock it yourself?

And did you get it from that link you posted?

I ask because I wasted my 1800 by putting the heatsink on wrong and it got too hot. :mad:

So I'm in search of another processor. I think that that place may be selling MP's, but I'm not certain.
