HighSpeed PC Athlon XP Unlocking Kit Review (Page 1)

When the new Athlon XP hit the streets, many overclocking enthusiasts were concerned about the new style of L1 bridges. You couldn't just grab a pencil and unlock the processor anymore. But then along came HighSpeed PC with their unlocking kit and they claimed that life would be good again saying that it was very easy and effective. Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he delves into this little kit to find out if it works, and if it really is as easy as claimed.

Rating: 95%Manufacturer: HighSpeed PC


HighSpeed PC is an online company that deals in items for the enthusiast. Whether it's the latest heatsink to hit the market, a new radiator for your water cooling rig, or maybe a new Lian-Li case. If you're wanting something for overclocking your toy, then chances are, HighSpeed PC has it or can get it.

But they don't deal in strictly retail products that just happen to fit the bill for your needs. They also have their own ideas for what is necessary to get the job done right. Which brings us to today's review of their own Athlon XP Unlocking Kit. They claim that it is a very simple matter to unlock one of the new Athlon XP processors, so we're going to put that theory to the test. Our goal is to see if the application is as simple as they would have us believe, and also to see if the kit really unlocks the multiplier.
