PII - reenable multiplier

I was at Cebit this year and there was a group who
claimed they could enable the multiplier again by
changing two lines on the slot-1 pcb.
Any ideas?

It's true, in fact, that's how all the fake PII 300 are done.

Well, I wasn't refering to o/c via bus speed, there're many OEM PII supplier coming up with fake PII 300, it's actually a PII 233 or 266 with multiplier re-enabled.  C' magazine first found this out about a month ago, their article mentioned that some PII flowing around does not have ECC L2 cache, and according to Intel's spec. there're no PII 300 without ECC.  Check this out:
