The T-bird 850 was my most lousy OC'er.
With VERY LOUD aircooling it only did 950, no matter what i tried. Ain't worth the effort.

it is correct that this guide is aimed strongly towards the memory timings only.

these are the other ones I disable for getting the highest overclock
*Video Memory Cache Mode = disabled
*Spread Spectrum = disabled

with the "agp speed" in the nvidia based program. should this be increased? or kept @ original settings? what does increasing the agp speed actually do / what damage can it cause?

im on a 2500+ @ 2.3ghz ( so far ) i tried 200x12 but it froze after about 10mins. i think ill mess with it latest based on this guide see if i cant push it further. althou i am on stock cooling.

my vid card is a Radeon 9700np

Ta.

increasing the AGP speed will have an increase in overall 3D games as effect, but not all cards support higher AGP speeds, the ATI 9700 is pretty sensitive to increased AGP speeds.

Ok, situation isnt really a problem but a hastle.
Specs:
AMD AthlonXP 2200+ with speed-strip unlocking strip installed
1 stick unknown vendor PC 3200 512mb ram
Asus A7N8X-D Motherboard

I determined 169 was the highest FSB I can post with.
169x12.5 = 2112.5

The Nvida System Utility correctly shows the FSB as 338 and from there I can raise the 338 to 352 and it runs GREAT at 2.2 GHZ!!
By this rational, I should be able to set my FSB in the BIOS to 176 (352 div by 2) and have it post successfully....right? Nope. It wont.
I have to reset the bios and start over.

WHY? I can't figure it out.
I can't *boot* at 2.2GHz but I *can* go into windows and raise it to 2.2 GHz and have it run fine.

Any help?

I ran aquamark and 3dmark03 both of which show better scores after the overclocking. I just dont want to have to screw with the nvidia utility every time I reboot. And apparently there are advanced options in the util that are unavailable to me for some reason. My understanding is that the advanced options apply themselves at every boot.

i have a asus A7V8X is there a program that could easily overclock it, without me going into bios. My friend has a gigabyte mobo and he has a utility like that could i install/use it on this mobo?
