I'm overclocking my XP-M 2500+ on an Epox 8RDA+. It's running really sweetly (2.25GHz with 1.50v, ~45C max) at 12.5 x 180MHz. The chip clearly has a long way to go before reaching its O/C limit. I don't want to raise the FSB further (RAM couldn't handle it), so I want to raise the multiplier. The motherboard won't allow me to choose multipliers above 12.5.

I recall that with Thoroughbred chips there used to be a trick to modify the active range of multipliers. It was possible to wrap two particular pins with wire and thereby make a connection. That would toggle the active range from <=12.5* to >=13*. Is the same possible with the Barton XP-Ms? If so, which two pins need to be connected?

Everything you need is right there: But a new custom bios with multipliers up to 14 would be very nice.
