View Full Version : Can any FX's stand High AGP Freq's?

06-27-03, 11:11 AM
If you have an FX card, and OC your FSB a little (or a lot) beyond the divider's ability to keep AGP @ 66mhz, please read on and give some feedback...

Currently the established kings of high agp rates are:

- Geforce 3 series (can stand up to 100mhz AGP)
- Geforce 2 Ultra/Pro/GTS/ti series (also can stand up to 100mhz)
- Radeon 8500 series (90-95mhz)

This ability has helped GF3's (for example) attain 13k 3dmark scores and awesome IMO gaming performance...

I'd like to know if any FX users out there are able to push their AGP freq. and still maintain stability...


- me wishes GFFX5600UMk.2 could take 9X mhz AGP... *dr00l...

i cant even overclock my fsb 5mhz! but i think its just my motheboard... because i have seen fsb's really high on some systems with geforcefx's

I've pushed a GF FX 5800 and a GF FX 5800 Ultra to 173 MHz FSB, which appears to be the limit of my Shuttle SN41G2 motherboard regardles of the DDR, processor, or video card installed. :(

173? That's an nforce2, right? dang, thats too bad...
(i know, fsb, not agp)

See, I have a mobo that I'd like to carry me thru next year (KR7A-133R, capable of 191fsb with GF3's...)... and I have a GF3 tweaked nicely for it, but I may want something for *in between* now and Jan/Feb. 2k4... If there's a newer nvidia card that can handle similar freq's, then I'd like to get ahold of it... From what I've heard, GF4ti's puke out around 70-80, and that's just not enuff for the killer bandwidth I need outta this nice kt266a...

I have a N-force2 board A7N8X-Deluxe2.0 and the highest you can set the agp buss is 100mhz,increaseing the buss should increase youre bandwith,but with 8x agp the bandwith is already higher than you will ever use on current MB.With my R9800Pro haveing it at 66mhz gives me the best gameing scores.

I just got my 5900 Ultra today so maybe ill try that.

oh yea "ragejg" sorry about the 2 drivers posts in here i wasnt thinkin b/c ive never had a reason to post there. ;) Sorry again.

...apparently, some cards benifit somehow from OC'ing AGP bus, some dont...

Ii had a 5200 in my rig and it completely DID NOT benifit at all from the AGP OC...

mebbe this is just how these cards are now? Maybe my situation is only reproducible with the cards I mentioned before (GF3, GF2, R8500)...

//hey--prodikal-- ::

you don't have to apologize. No biggie. ;) You just gotta ALWAYS step quietly and listen for little flibble-ings in the breeze... cuz if you hear them.... RUN FER THE HILLS!! VAMP'S LOOSE!;)

Uh, 173 MHz FSB, not AGP MHz. I misunderstood the question.
