I have just bought I new AMD Athlon XP Barton 2500, how can I tell with out installing it, if it is locked or not, I've read "Before 2003 week 39, all AMD XP series processors leaft factory with unlocked multipliers", but is there any way to tell by the numbers on the back of the cpu.

On the black sticker on the CPU, it will list the OPN, look at the last set of numbers and what you want is for it to have the first 4 digits be 0339 or less.
