Hey just have a question. I just bought an Athlon XP 2200+ and an AOpen AK77-8XN and I have control over the clock multiplier. I can change it in the bios and boot into windows and the change sticks. The motherboard is a VIA chipset not the NForce2 which I heard had multiplier adjustment. Whats up? Am I misinformed? Thanks...

if the processor is of the barton or thourobred core variety, then yes you can change the multiplier right of the box on your motherboard. however, if it's a palomino, you will physically have to close the L1 bridges first
