Someone should post a list of exactly which processors can be used. Tons of people on these two threads ask that same question a million times, and the answer is always 7x5 series. Well, to those of us who have been loyal to AMD for years, that doesn't mean much of anything. I think I am logical enough to figure out that a 1.6 dothan 725 2mb cache 400fsb @ 90nm is what I am looking for, but if someone were to just flat out say "these chips will probably work" "these chips will probably not work" would be kinda helpful. I miss the days when a chip was just called what it is, none of this "PM 730" and "XP 3500+" jargon flying around.
Secondly, if anyone reads both of the guides listed at the start of this post, you'll see that the authors jumped DIFFERENT PINS! Yes, I was quite shocked and amazed. But, it makes perfect sense that there is a ground above and a ground to the left of the critical pin, and all you need is a ground on that pin, so essentially they are the same thing. Dont freak out and have your blood pressure skyrocket or anything.
