Problem unlocking Duron Morgan 1.3GHz
I've tried several times to unlock my 1.3GHz Duron with Morgan Core by using a pencil on the five L1 bridges but haven't had any success. I've earlier unlocked my 1.0 GHz Thunderbird the same way successfully and run it on my current MSI KT4V motherboard.
When I try to change the multiplier from 13 to 12 at 100MHz FSB on the Duron without connecting the five L1 bridges the computer starts nomally at 13x but when I've connected the five L1 bridges with a pencil on the processor the computer won't start with these setting.
Am I doing something wrong in connecting all the five L1 bridges or isn't it possible to unlock the 1.3GHz Duron.
I'd appreciate any help possible!!!

The Celeron 1.3 and Duron 1.3 will not have much overclocking headroom at all, because these are very close to their limits. These 2 are definitely not the best CPU’s for overclocking. The Celeron 1.0A however is decent however. Both have a very decent chance of being overclocked to 133Mhz front side bus speed, overclocking them to 1.33GHz. These CPU’s may be the best for overclocking. As for the Duron 1.2, it can be unlocked fairly easily, so it has good overclocking potential as well.

Well I don't have a Celeron 1.0A or a Duron 1.2. I have a Duron 1.3 with Morgan core and just want to know why I can't get it unlocked and if any one else has unlocked a 1.3 Duron. I know it has to be able to run multiplier overclocked on my MB since the Thunderbird did and the MSI KT4V supports all Duron, Thunderbird and Athlon XP processors available on the market.
Besides I payed 20 € (about $20) last week for the proccessor and that's way cheaper then retailprice for Duron 1.2 or Celeron 1.0A. And a quote from the page linked above "Now, there is the potential of overclocking the 1.0A but again, the Duron 1.3 that costs the same price would still likely outperform it" and mine cost less and it was brand new from the store(where my friend works!). If someones wondering why I didn't by a Athlon XP it's simple I COULDN'T AFFORD ONE, since I'm a 20-year old student.
I've tried overclocking by FSB to 110-112 at 1.80v and it runs stable at around 1430-1456, higher then 112 it chrashes within a few minutes at all voltages, even 1.90v. But I thought it might be possible to reach 1500 with multiplier and FSB overclocking. My MB supports up to 1.90v since the output is 0.05v higher then the expected and my last setting in BIOS is 1.85v.
The 1.3 Duron has potential in my opinion to reach 1.5GHz, I'm pretty sure of it. Check the third last picture http://www.hexus.net/review.php?review=264 .
I belive I have the same version (AHLCA) as this one, http://www.3dvelocity.com/reviews/duron13/duron13.htm.
These guys got it to 1.46 GHz by dropping the multiplier and running FSB@133MHz, http://www.pcstats.com/articleview.c...eid=934&page=5. But I belive they used the bridges to change multiplier.
All I want to know is why I can't unlock the Duron 1.3 with Morgan Core and if someone else has managed to change the multiplier settings and at what max stable speed they have gotten it.
Like earlier any help possible is appreciated!!
