Our friends over at Overclockers Australia have posted a short pictorial based guide to unlocking your Athlon XP "Thoroughbred" processor. While short on commentary, it seems to be right on track with a bunch of different pictures to geek at.

I unlocked a couple of Athlon XP Thoroughbred CPUs. I took them to an easily stable 2600+ and 2800+ speed with full control of multipliers and everything, yet it took me about 2 minutes. Here is a series of pics to illustrate how easy it is. I thought it would be kewl to show everyone how to do it the easy way.
