First of all Welcome to OCInside.de !
A Thornton basically is a castrated Barton with only 256k of second level cache. you can try to reactivate the disabled or defect cache by connecting the open L2 bridges on the organic surface of the cpu. it should work with the conducting pen you mentioned.
Your issue with the multiplier.. theoretically the thornton should be able to use all multipliers from 5 up to 24. practically it depends on your motherboard if you are able to use the multiplier. you wrote that all but 15 work with your mobo. that sounds very strange to me, so let me ask: does 14 or 17 work?
it's important because if your motherboard uses a 4-bit fid for the multiplier it will only allow multipliers up to 12,5. if your motherboard provides a 5-bit fid, higher multipliers should work fine.
as far as i know the abit kt7a mobo has the via kt133a chipset so it could be possible the it interprets higher multiplier as lower ones because of a bios or chipset restriction but i'm not sure if i am right..
please tell me if you are basically able to use higher multipliers than 12,5.
i also suggest to update your bios to the latest one...
