Is my set up dangerous?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Using clockgen i get these readings for my system:
CPU - 2000.14 MHz
HTT - 250.02 MHz
Memory - 200.01 MHz
AGP - 83.34 MHz
PCI - 41.67 MHZ

I am running my FSB at 250*8 with a 5:3 divider, my vcore is 1.5v.
All temps are stable (around 33C) and a torture test for 5 hours on prime 95 shows no errors or warnings.
However i have read that my PCI should be no more than 39 or i risk HDD corruption and could lose all my data.
Any advice please?

Yep, your AGP and PCI buses aren't locked. See if you can find out how to lock them in the bios. If you can get these locked you might be able to overclock more.

I been in my bios but i can only set my AGP/PCI to auto, 66.66/33.33 or 75.4/37.7 but if i put it to anything but auto the system wont even boot! Will my PCI @ 41 MHz really pose a danger or can it be left safely? My mobo has a via chipset and these are not very good for oc's so i am limitted to what i can do.
The main question, is the PCI too risky @ 41?

Yeah 66/33 is the lock. 41Mhz is a bit high really and might cause instability and data loss.

You can actually fry the video card if you get your agp/pci to high.

If you can't lock the AGP/PCI then your best bet is to replace the motherboard with something that you can lock the AGP/PCI with. Otherwise, you can have data loss, and possibly fry the video card. If you want to run it like that, those are just the possible outcomes.

So it's either heed the warnings of the people that have been doing this longer, or risk your hardware.

Not to nitpick, but you're running a 3:5 divider, not a 5:3. Anything greater than 1 signifies that you're running your ram at a greater speed than your frontside bus.
