Unlocking amd xp.... will this work?
« on: February 01, 2004, 05:12:37 PM »

This is a long post but please read it if you know how to unlock amd xps.

I just took apart my Xp Palomino processor and heatsink for the first time since i installed it for the first time and it was a lot easier than i had expected...  I put on some arctic silver 5 because the stock heatpad was almost all melted away.  Anyhow, i thought of unlocking my processor because i had it opened.  

I read all that i could and watched some guides and I understand the procedure competely.  
I already got the laser locked bridges filled with super glue so they won't ground themselves.

MY problem is... i can't find conductive ink or silver lacquer anywhere to connect the l1 bridges.  I tried radio shack, lowes, home depot, aco, ace, none have the silver lacquer.
I was wondering it silver filled epoxy will work because i found some at murrays.  The silver filled epoxy was in a kit to repair window defrosters. There are two syringes and i guess you mix them...  can i use this mixture to connect the bridges....  Id rather use tha lacquer because it isn't permanent.... but where can i find that stuff..

OK i think i am going to try this kit: http://www.highspeedpc.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=HSPC&Product_Code=XPkit&Category_Code=OC

Has anyone used this kit and know if it works good?  the only thing i am questioning is... It says that the conductive grease doesn't dry... Wouldnt that be a problem.  MY cpu is mounted sideways like most everyones, wouldnt it run all over the place?  Will covering the grease with masking tape at the end help?  

BTW... i keep seeing cpu shims... what do they do... they seem a little pointless to me.

CPU shims will help you NOT crack your CPU core.  Sometimes, heatsinks for AMD processors can be an extreme bitch to install.

if u get a cpu shim get an anodized aluminum one. the copper ones conduct electricity, i fried my system w/one of those.

also try this:

The defroster repair stuff will work, it's actually what alot of people used at first before the conductive pens got so popular.
