Hello.

I have an intel e7400 and i want to unlock the multiplier so that i broaden my overclocking. Is it possible ???
I have heard that i can do this by upgrading my bios to a hacked version that allows you to have the multiplier you want.
Can anyone help me ? Am i I right ???Where can i find the hacked bios???

Thanks In Advance.

Don't think you can do that anymore, changing the bus should give you as much as it can do anyway.

Years ago you could short pins to change the multiplier and then years before that you could move jumpers on the board. But some kind engineers have designed the adjustable FSB to make our lives so much easier.

is there a way to unlock it so it can take any value ???

Have you tried overclocking the FSB? It's a much more efficient way to overclock as in data bandwidth over CPU frequency. Exactly, how much overclocking progress have you had so far with that e7400 and which motherboard are you using?

Yes , i overclock the FSB. So far , i have overclocked to 3,333 Ghz using bus clock 333 and 10 multiplier.I have an asus p5q se/r , p45 chipset MOBO.

i haven't tried more because i am not sure about if the system is going to boot or not.
what do you think ???
will it be able to boot if i have bus clock 333 and 10,5 multilier ???(what means 3,5 Ghz)

*Scratches head*

Your trying to unlock your multiplier even tho you havnt maxed it out yet?

Not knowing if its going to boot is a reality of overclocking. Try it and see. Worst that can happen is you have to reset your bios.

Try it and see. Every chip is different. We cant tell you how far it and your motherboard will clock. You have to find that out.

If you still have the voltage on auto, you should take it off of that and set it manually. It is safe to set the voltage as high as about 1.36, possibly 1.4 if you push it a bit. Keep an eye on temperatures as well. Push it as high as you can while staying under 72C or so full load and 1.36 volts.

Not even years ago. With the Q6600 there was a pin (well not really since it has no pins) mod to actually set the FSB to a standard 333MHz thus giving you a stock OC of 3GHz.

There are always some out there. But not all.
