Abit Vt7

Does anyone know which bios version is the best for overclocking this motherboard? Is there a bios that allows me to lock the pci/agp?

It is really not much of a overclocking board. My GFs computer has the VT7 and it lacks a agp/pci lock so when you overclock your CPU you are also raising your PCI and AGP ports speeds. After about 215mhz FSB you will start to see data corruption on your hard drives. It is a good board though. Her computer has been running pretty good for a long time. She is pretty good at breaking her computers as well. But that is just because she will download random crap and run it. If you can get your hands on a IS7 or a IC7 made by abit and you will be set to go. I am still running s478 as well. I have the IC7 and I love it

I bought this abit on here because the price was right. I found that if you set it at a 5:4:1 ratio you can bump up the fsb pretty well. I have my celeron d 330 upped to 2.92 and my ram is slightly underclocked as with my pci and agp slots. I can zero it in pretty close with the multipliers but its a pain in the ass. Of course my front side bus is nowhere near 215. I dont think i will go that high because i have no money and the only thing i have to fall back on if something goes wrong is a non clockable biostar with a 1.8 celery.
