Is it possible to overclock a mobo from 4x to 8x AGP?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
This question has probably been asked before, but I couldn't seem to find any answers.

My other computer has an ASUS P4VP-MX Mobo with a 4x AGP slot. I haven't updated the bios yet, but I was wondering if it is possible to bring a 4x slot to 8x using a patch or something?

Not too sure if it is all strictly hardware related, but the only difference I can see between the two is the voltage. Would updating the mobo drivers do this?

Thanks in advance!

No updates will turn a 4x AGP bus into an 8x AGP bus.
