    I just purchased an AMD XP 1800+ Tbred for use on my KT7-R board. I had no
    intention to OC it but I've sort of changed my mind. I've been looking at
    OCing guides that show the procedure for connecting the L1 bridges but in
    this newsgroup I have seen people talking about cutting the L3 and L5
    bridges. Do I need to do both or just the latter?

    If you are using a motherboard that will let you change the multipliers. All
    you need to do is unluck the multipliers with the L1 bridges.
    On my old motherboard It didn't let me change the multipliers so if I wanted a
    different one. I had to cut, and connect different bridges for the mulitplier I
    wanted to use. Using the L1 bridges wouldn't make a difference.
    Now I am using an Nforce2 motherboard that can change the multipliers, but I
    had to connect the L1 bridges in order for it to work.
    My Athlon is a Palomino which the Nforce2 boards can't unluck, but it can
    change the multipliers after it is unlocked.The Nforce2 motherboard can't
    unluck the Palomino's but if I'm not mistaken it can unlock just about all the
    TBred cpu's so you don't have to do anything to it to change the multipliers.

  3. if your processor is the thoroubred or barton core, then you can use what is
    called a "speed strip" available here...
