I've heard of it and seen results from it here check this outPerbi and the XP-TMC
To be honest, the pinmod here:http://www.ocinside.de amd pinmod,
' ">http://www.ocinside.de/go_e.ht...pinmod/amd_pinmod.html is a lot easier and cheeper to do.
From the XP-TMC FAQ...It cannot be used with locked CPU's.QUOTE
Why can't the multipliers of my AMD Athlon XP be adjusted ?
1. Before using XP-TMC for upgrade, you must check whether the multipliers of your Athlon XP is locked or not. If yes, you can't use XP-TMC for adjusting the multipliers.QUOTE
1) It raises the chip a little bit, I assume that means you need to modify the heatsink clips to get the heatsink on without chipping the CPU core.
See the kit here:install custon bracket and heatsink.
2)It is not a ZIF socket, so I would guess that means it is like the old press-in type sockets.
Put the CPU in the adaptor then place the whole thing into the socket on the mainboard...the multiplier adjusters are on the other side of the adaptor...very time consuming to experiment with different multipliers since you have to remove the heatsink & fan, clean up the TIM each time you want to accurately try to adjust the multiplier.QUOTE
so If I go with a mobile, I wouldn't need this thing, but I'd still like to see what the general opinion of it is.
If you go with a mobile you will not need the adaptor if your mainboard supports manual or software (via the bios) changing of the multuplier...I would go with the mobile, it's potential far exceeds anything with an adaptor.
Just my $0.02
