Review of postings for Athlon Bridge Cutting Question (the latest posts first)
godisturbed Erstellt: 12:28 am 6. Mai 2003

cut and reconnect the L3, L4, L6, and L7.

How do you know what ones to change for the multiplier you want?

I have  an athlon 1400 and want to get multilpier to 15 or 16, how would i know what to do to those bridges?

:lol: :afro:
This is my main PC i need for all hp works, so it have to be calm
BTW the CPU is trash, i'm happy to get it stable at this rate
have to buy a new one, soon.

I couldn't find out the exact function about these L2 and L5 bridges, sorry.

The cuts aren't too difficult with a scalpel, but i already know the answer of most german forum poster - "take a 12 V power supply unit and :bomb: the bridges away :lol:
Yes, it's no joke - It's the reality and works !

I'm Running an Athalon on Socket A - It is a 1.1GHz@1.25 currently. I wish to change this but ABIT dosen't have any higher multipliers in the BIOS. So I'm planning on erasing my penciling of the L1 bridges and then i'll need to cut and reconnect the L3, L4, L6, and L7. I was wondering how i can go about cutting these bridges without messing up my processor. I realize i take a sharp knife and cut them, but does anyone have a guide or advice on how to go about cutting these bridges? Also... does anybody know what the L2 and L5 bridges do on the orginal Socket A Athalons?

Yes that's right, it's damn easy to connect a little piece of copper to ground but with a very sharp knife it's possible to break the bridge with ONE cut
Then it's nearly impossible to connect it to ground.

i realize that if i clean the bridges well and then
contact them exactly from the centre, say, with the wire and silver cement method

before i have painted right across from one contact to the other and across the cut area in the middle which was insulated with super glue (i figure that would have covered it, but then i scrape off excess like shown at toms hardware, with a knife, and that probably could expose a little copper if it was flaring up)

I think your problem may be some scratches onto the surface beneath the bridges of your CPU.
You should try to insulate a part around the bridges carefully to prevent a connection from any bridge to ground.

i not get my multiplier off 16x.
first i got nothing until being real careful about closing with silver correction pen and masking (thermal paste didnt work as insulator, mabe it conducted to the copper, or the copper was poking up???)

then i got 16x, so tried 16.5: cut first l3, close 3rd l3.:: still shows 16x at POST.

now i want to try 17x and am worried about correctly CUTTING the last l4 bridge, and as well i tried closing the 5 l1 bridges aND FAILED. just wouldnt do it. does the copper underneath that i cut with exacto knife flare up towards contacts mabe?  

scared to CUT the first l4
scared i wont be able to get contact to CLOSE back anything, nomatter how careful.. what gives?  everyone else gets it even with a crayon, i cant even with careful masking and corrective pen applied with a needle!!! :megacry:

Yes 55°C is hot I agree.  But this is with the retail boxed processor heatsink.  I am sure it is made by Cooler Master EP5-6i11-a1
For testing purposes, I wanted to see how much heat the CPU could sustain at the 1400 default speed.  I used a hair dryer and I stopped once it said 73°C.  I've never ever seen it that hot and I thought it would have crashed by then.  I may be in for a super overclocker, if it can sustain heat like that at 1400.  I am going to try for 1600 with multiplier changing alone to 12.  I will be using the Millenuim Glaciator 2 with a c/w of .34
I have calculated this theory for 1600 MHz:

(C/W * WATTS = Delta) + Case = CPU Temp
(0.34 *   91.6   =  31.1) +   30   =   61.1

too hot?  Should I just satisfy myself with an overclock of 1540?  Or should I go for 1600?  There's really only one way to find out.  Thats to do it.
