This thread is only for informational purpose, and if you wanna try this MOD, do it at your own risk
Here's a way of modding your old Athlon XP Desktop CPU to Equivalent Athlon MP CPU :eek:hyeah:
http://www.livepublishing.co.uk/pcextreme/page_316.shtml

The possible use i can think of this modding is:
- Desktop Athlon XP Multiplier Adjustments on the fly from Windows using a suitable program like CPUMSR
- If you can arrange a server motherboard with support for Dual Chips like AMD 760MPX, you can use two of these CPU, to build an extremely fast machine at fraction of cost :eek:hyeah:
- It will increase your resale value of your old AthlonXP CPU ;)

It will increase your resale value of your old AthlonXP CPU

Yeah, normal ink isn't supposed to be conductive. Best of luck with modding with pencil :)
BTW are you sure this moddin works with the Sempron Series, 'cause i've read somewhere, that AMD was thinking of disabling this SMP feature in latter models of Athlon XP and which mobo are u using guru, 'cause all mobo's don't support AthlonMP, so better make sure u've got the right one.

Not Electrically Conductive:
Arctic Silver 5 was formulated to conduct heat, not electricity.
(While much safer than electrically conductive silver and copper greases, Arctic Silver 5 should be kept away from electrical traces, pins, and leads. While it is not electrically conductive, the compound is very slightly capacitive and could potentially cause problems if it bridges two close-proximity electrical paths.)
its NOT electrically conductive
