View Full Version : Locked PCI/AGP speeds
07-31-02, 11:30 AM
With the recent slew of P4 motherboards supporting a separate clock that will keeo the PCI and AGP ports locked at the correct frequencies, overclocking has no deterimental affect on them anymore (and thus eliminating them as a bottleneck to higher fsb speeds). This allows you to push only the CPU, board and memory itself to reach the absolote maximum speed.
I think this is the best overclocking tool since jumper-less motherboards and can't wait to get my p4 system built to check it out.
What do you guys think? Will we ever see such a feature on upcomming AMD-based boards?

Well nForce2 is supposed to let you set the AGP/PCI buses at whatever you want to, so I would say that's a version of that feature.

I'm wondering if any SiS 648 mobos have the PCI/AGP speed lock you spoke of. Can anyone give specific mobos that have this feature? Thanks from a Intel noob..

Being able to arbitrarily set the AGP/PCI bus frequencies within a certain range of values can be a very valuable overclocking tool. The only issue is making sure the mobo makers install BIOS code which can handle a 5:2:1 clock ratio.

I want to overclock my celeron tualatin@ 1.1 ghz..
I have oc already @ 1.4 and it loads windows and runs stable but my AGP bus is running too high @ 84 mhz.. I de-oc again back to 1.1 ghz because I am afraid I can damage my video card... is it 84 mhz a normal speed like that it wont damage my hardware??
and since my celeron ratio is locked... is there any other way that I can increase the FBS and keep the AGP/PCI speed low and safe???
I'd appreciate any help, comment on this,
Thanks in advance,

If you can get it to 133fsb it should switch back to 33pci bus and 66agp bus since that is what a PIII runs at, if it will overclock that high.On my celli 1.3 I could get it to 133FSB but I had to raise the cpu voltage.

Sounds reasonable.. but I cant get my celeron at 133... the higest speed I can get it is 131, I dont know why since, my motherboard supports p3 at 133 too...
I had my system working for a long time oc with the agppci bus speed running high but I lost confidence and took it back to its normal speed... anyway I dont know if I really need that boost..
Thanks for the tip anyway I am sure it will help though..

Did you raise the cpu voltage then try to hit 133FSB,that was the way I got my that high.
