PCIE Frequency at 150 Need help of view

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So i have been messing around with my mother board bios setting and thought i would max out the pcie frequency to 150 now i went and read to see if this would damage my board and so far all i ran into was people of intel build having issue raising pcie frequency and now this makes me wonder does it apply to amd boards as well because i can go all the way up to 150 with no issue. everything boots up and all the temp sensors are all below 40c. so does this cause heat in other places that i can't tell just wondering since the main chips aren't heating up. my case is really big with tons of fans and sucks air like a vacuum. so far the performance is way better i kept my cpu at stock 3.1ghz here is my build.

MainBoard: 990FX-UD3 Gigabyte

CPU: 8120-FX

RAM: 8Gb Gskills 1600mhz

GPU: Diamond 6770 radeon

HDD: 500gb western digital caviar blue

I have my gpu maxed on core clock 960 with my memory down clocked to 1100 with voltage of 1.125 runs smooth and cool

the hardrives run fine no corruption i herd that it shouldn't be able to boot at all at 150 on pcie freq. so am i fine since its amd or is there some issue
that i haven't read about thanks smile.gif.

i don't think there actually is any benefit to overclocking your pcie lanes, only the risk of data corruption and harming your motherboard.
for older processors it was used to increase fsb frequencies, not sure if this is true with am3+ processors.
could you post a picture of your motherboard running 150mhz on the pcie lanes?

also, it's somewhat menial but you want your case to have positive pressure vs. negative pressure.

Sure do i have to shut off my pc and go into the bios or can i just use a software that shows it so i can just screen shot it?

if you have a camera i believe that is the best way. go into your bios and take a picture of your screen showing 150mhz on the pcie lanes, i'm really interested to see this.

Can you check the frequency using CPUZ or GPUZ?

yeah you're right, having it set in the bios doesn't mean it's necessarily applied, setfsb will show it,
