    I'm interested in picking up a 2500. I blew up my 2200 (long story). Anyways, I know that newer 2500's (all newer bartons, perhaps?) are multiplier locked. Is there any way to tell which ones are/aren't locked. I was thinking about picking something up on ebay cheap, or maybe if someone here is trying to get rid of one.

    You could probably tell by the serial # but I'm not sure what #'s are what. :)

    Make sure your MB has the hardware (clock chip) and Frimware (bios) to support clock multiplier changes too. Mine does not.

    On the other hand FSB overclocking produces better results if you can also push your RAM proportionally. I have my Barton 2500 FSB pushed to 183 and RAM to 366 and life is stable(haven't seen a BSOD).

    Just make sure you are not also pushing your AGP clock or PCI clock. Add in card overclocking can cause problems.
