PCI Latency Timer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey everyone,

i am just wondering, i was talking to some of the guys at OCN about the overclocking of my CPU, coming to that, PCI lock came up, i am just wondering what it is, and if the PCI Latency timer has anything to do with it.

if it dont can someone explain it in easier term, i read someone FAQ about it, but i still was a little confused.

thanks in advanced

no.. PCI lock is simply a method of locking the PCI bus at a fixed frequency. PCI has a default frequency of 33MHz (AGP 66MHz, PCI-E 100MHz). By locking the PCI bus, you fix that frequency when you overclock.

The latency, I think, is more like a method of PCI devices sharing resources... not too sure how it exactly works though.

Its a pretty easy tool to use, I use it infact with my X-Fi. Most components will be at 64 in the tool and that is what you want to leave them at. It is a pretty good idea to use it with your AGP card as its latency would probably be around 200 or so (lower is better). Google a how to on it for better instructions.

Off Topic: did you find out if putting the sticks in 1 and 3 gave dual channel?
