Athlon XP3000+ overclock advice?

    I have an Abit NF7-S2 (socket A) motherboard, whose BIOS supports
    FSB tweaking in 1MHz increments, but doesn't provide a way to
    change the CPU multiplier.

    I would quite like to take a second-hand AXDA3000DKV4D chip and
    tweak it to run at 13.5x166 = 2250MHz (it's been my experience that
    Barton CPUs are noticeably less stable at 2300MHz than at 2250MHz).

    Once I've comprehensively tested its stability at 13.0x173 MHz,
    I plan to take a very sharp scalpel and cut bridge 0 of L3
    (as suggested by http://fab51.com/cpu/barton/athlon-e23.html )

    Assuming I don't make a mess of this procedure, can I expect that:

    * if the CPU is unlocked or locked, the multiplier will be changed?

    * if the CPU is super-locked, the multiplier will remain unchanged,
    but the CPU won't display any signs of damage in operation?
