HighSpeed PC Athlon XP Unlocking Kit Review

When I first started hearing about the new design of the Athlon XP processors, I was a little worried that unlocking the processor would be out of the question. Even when you get a good deal on your processor, they are still too expensive to take many chances on ruining it. But all these fears were completely unfounded when it came to actually doing the work. Why? Because of this little $12 Unlocking Kit from HighSpeed PC.


It is claimed that it is an extremely easy process to fill the grounded gaps and make a connection between the leads. This proved to be true. There were no hard tasks involved in the process, and the results speak for themselves.


Given the success of the T-Birds when they were unlocked, I can see of no reason why the new Athlon XP will be any different. But to get the best results, you just have to have the flexibility of being able to adjust the multiplier on your processor. This kit does just that, and does it well.


Bottom line... If you're planning on overclocking your Athlon XP, and plan on unlocking it yourself, then do yourself a favor and get one of these kits. It is a simple matter to get the most out of your investment.
