Is this 2200+ locked? Can anybody decipher this code?

  1. Hi!
    Im posting this again since some servers are not picking up the post with
    the attached jpg. here is what the tag on the chip said:

    AMD Athlon
    AXDA2200DUV3C 9180467280553
    AIUCB 0242VPDW 1999 AMD


    the question is, can i overclock this chip? is it locked? is it a A or B
    (whatever that means) core? will bridging the L3 gap unlock it?

    any help with decoding the numbers that you see will be helpful. take a
    look at the jpg- you can even see the cut bridges.

    thanks

  2. Thus spake Louis Tigerman:
    With this being a text-only group most server will drop post with
    attachments (like mine did). A better technique would be to upload the
    picture to your webpage, or to one of the free image hosting places,
    and put a link to it in your post.

    Regardless, the date code 0242 and the stepping AIUCB imply that it is
    unlocked. It is one of the earlier Thoroughbred-B chips, and will
    probably max out around 2200-2300 MHz.

    It's a Tbred B core (determined by the B at the end of AIUCB). 1.60v
    default vcore, dtermined by the U in DUV. Should overclock nicely raising
    vcore. Date code 0242 says it was made in week 42 of 2002. A rather old B
    core. Date codes are on most IC's from simple 14pin TTL to whatever. And
    yes, it's unlocked. I don't recall which Mb you have, but the cpu will
    accept multipliers fom 5 to 24 if your board can provide them. Default for
    the 2200+ is 13.5x133MHz FSB.
