Default Re: Athlon 3500+, 3800+ FX 53 (939) to buy now

I've now left it at 2.2Ghz as it does not seem that the KT800PRO has locked PCI & AGP buses like i thought they said, my SATA RIAD has fallen over and i can't seem to get the computer to work correctly at 227MHz FSB Even lowered the HTT BUS to 600MHz. Oh well never mind it more then enough power here to make my Radeon 9800Pro a bottlenec.

The AGP/PCI lock doesn't work? Awww that sucks! Maybe the next bios release can help you?

Nice 3dmark though I'll be sure to post mine as soon as the goods arrive!

Well this was what i got.

The Pro version definitely is the better choice in contrast to the non-pro version, as it does not only support the 1 GHz HyperTransport speed, but also allows for asynchronous operation of the AGP and the PCI bus. This is, of course, a highly important feature for overclocking[/b[[/quote]

After getting to know a guy from their it seems it all depends on the revision of the board you get mine is 45MGBOB7855 and doesn't seem to support the PCI/AGP locks.

What do you mean reducing the AGP speed, its supposed to be locked @ 66mhz?

Na the VIA board i have doesn't lock the bus speed it's diffrent really

AGP 4x 266MHz (66MHz x 4) = o/c 219MHz FSB, (73 x 4 = 292MHz)
AGP 8x 533MHz (66MHz x 8) = o/c 219Mhz FSB, (73 x 8 = 584Mhz)

I am using AGP 4x
